How can a fish and chip shop have the No.2 ranking out of all eateries in Tauranga? Easy when it is Bobby's I guess. Excellent fish and chips in a great location. The eating area could be just fantastic with a little work but still just fine as it is. It was a late lunch when we stopped in at... More

We came today for lunch. As mentioned already by others, this is not a restaurant. More like a fish shop with the take away. There are few tables outside to eat the fish. The choice was a bit confusing as we were looking for some set packages which they do have. So just pick per piece what you want. The... More

The best. If the meal is bad the rest is bad . This place ticks all the boxes. The ammount of choice self selection of fish both species and size and the great crispy batter with soft mussels and moist fish is great

Super fresh fish, crispy better and perfect chips. Love the simplicity of picnic tables with water lapping at the warf, boats bobbing and seagulls squaking. Helps pass the time of the long wait for your freshly cooked order. The place is so popular, its not for a quick takeaway as there is usually quite a queue. Eating with fingers off... More

Extremely busy on a Sunday afternoon. Everything is freshly made as you wait in a long line. Vinegar, Ketchup, Tartar Sauce are all extra - go figure! The fish & chips are wrapped in paper, no forks or knives. A Lemon is 99 cents. The fish batter was thin and crispy and the fish was light and flakey. Chips are... More

Very basic picnic style tables, on the waters edge, boats bobbing on the water. All the effort goes into producing the freshest and best fish and chips in the area. A large menu but it's the fish and chips that hit the spot every time.

Amazing service and food. Freshest fish and beautifully cooked. We ordered 6 fish and because the fillets were smaller than average got 15. The chips were golden and crisp and we had a vegetarian spring rolll to, yummy.
