Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have read the latest reviews and I disagree with them completely. This establishment is extremely popular with both locals and visitors. I visited and ordered Blue Cod and chips at around 18:00. I was given a number and told to come back at 18:45....At 18:40, I returned and waited 7 minutes to pick up my order. The Blue Cod and chips were both excellent and a good portion size. Salt was not added but it was available as separate packets supplied free. I thanked Ric and left. Well done.More

Probably the worse fish and chips we have ever had over the past five years. Poor service as well. Find another place to eat.

Looking forward to a nice feed of blue cod, was disappointed that there was nothing available so changed to a piece of Sole, the fish was not very nice at all the mussels were tiny and tasted like vinegar, you would think a fish and...chip shop right on the water would have fresh fish this is not the case with this place.”More

takeaway fish meal underwhelmed. Our experience left us feeling 'someone dropped the ball' or 'owner's night off'? under par in every respect especially food quality- frozen product unexpected / unworthy of premium pricing structure- $48 for two diners (takeway) twas allegedly blue cod ? Most...fish uneaten, chips poor after initial tasting confirmed 'we don't wish to consume'. Value is one circle. all else two circles. not rushing back to this establishment.More

This is a very busy fish & chip takeaway, they give you a number when you place you order with an approximate time to return to pick it up. We waited around 20 minutes for ours, but as you can sit on the sea shore...it wasn't an issue as the location is so lovely. The food was tasty and of a good quality. Also the menu is huge!More

We had some delicious take away fish and chips from here. One of our group had the seafood platter, the rest of us had elephant fish. Service was friendly, efficient and the food was fairly priced.

I ordered fish and chips here (for take out.) Only waited about 10 minutes. The blue cod was so fresh it just melted in my mouth! The chips were nothing special but who cares when the fish is that delicious!

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...be returning which is a shame as this is one of the only local options around.More

I liked the options on the menu and that fact that you salt your own chips. This place isn't cheap and for that I expected amazing cod. It wasn't. I suspect it wasn't the freshest and the chips were fine. W would not recommend or...return which is a pity as the owner is very nice and clearly hard working.More

I love blue cod and chips as a treat. Fish has to be cooked perfectly and batter lovely and crisp, not soggy. Ric's fish and chips were perfection. I could smell the ocean when I bit into the lovely fresh fish, and the chips were...crunchy, a perfect portion. The meal doesn't come salted you help yourself to sachets of salt and do it yourself. We sat by the water and opened our parcels and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Oh, and you also get a wedge of lemon to squeeze on your fish. Enjoy!More

Best fries we've had in New Zealand. Portions were HUGE for a mere $3.00. 2 portions and you could more than feed a whole family. Cooked to perfection and delicious. If you are staying at the Portobello Tourist park, it's just a walk away. Treat...yourself.More

Stylish, is because they open only from 5:30pm to 7-ish. I would say the fish is fair, but chips is good. Chef does not add any salt to the chips and so you can consider how salty you want. However as it is a MTO...and take-away shop, once the food are wrapped for a while, it is hard to find back the crispy feel which is what I expect to have.More
