Two couples ordered fish and chips last night and were very disappointed. The chips were tasteless and not well cooked. The lemon sole fish was average and while the blue cod was slightly better for $9.50 for one piece we expected greater things. Will not...More

Came here based upon Tripadvisor reviews and was a bit disappointed. Ordered the cod, chips and salad. Cod was okay tasting but the coating was soggy, chips seemed cooked out of the freezer, and salad was bits of iceberg lettuce with pickles. Had better fish...More

After a long trip from Catlins we just wanted to settle into our accommodation and have a takeaway of quality without eating in a restaurant as Portobello is a little off the beaten track. We could not have wished for better - fresh fish lightly...More
