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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I looked forward to having some smoked roe, as it is one of my favorites, however what I purchased was practically inedible. It was so dry and tasted old, consequently I had to throw it out - absolute rubbish!

Came here per recommendation from the locals who said Adriatic was the best fish&chips around. Our vegetarian burger was one of the best we've ever tried, fish burger was a bit dry, grilled snapper was quite small and lacked flavour, chips were excellent, wedges were...well done but also lacked seasoning, both chips and wedges were not greasy, pineapple fritter and a donut were good. Looking at Google reviews, Adriatic is indeed the best, though we expected a bit more.More

The products at Adriatic Fisheries is always so fresh. Whenever we want fish & chips or great cooked seafood for us or as a recommendation to others its Adriatic. We normally get a piece of schnapper, cooked oysters, mussels, scallops. potato fritters and a few...chips, then off to the park to enjoy it all until the last bit has disappeared. They will cook it well done if you ask and nothing is a problem with them.More

We received this recommendation from a local, and decided to do take away instead of dine in at another restaurant, as the fish source was the same, for a fraction of the dine in price. Since we were staying at waterfront accommodation, we ordered take-away...snapper with scallops, chips and wedges, and it was the best and freshest snapper! An absolute must eat!More

Wow, this is one of Whangarei hidden gems. The Fisherman's basket is my favorite. The batter is nice and light, the scallops, oyster, mussels, squid rings, crab stick and fish are fresh and cooked to perfection. Staff are friendly and make you feel at home....Check it out👍👍👍👍More

A typical walk in takeaway but they catch their own fish. Stopped in to buy lunch. Service was prompt, menu not overwhelming just the basics and done well! Good value and we also bought some fresh fish to cook at home.

Used to be one of the best fish & chip shops in town. Overcooked & underwhelming was our order tonight. They also mucked up our order. Save your money.

Decided to try Adriatic Fisheries as our normal supplier had changed hands and not for the better. Our order & requests were taken with pleasant staff. All cooked in good time so then was the time to check it out. Snapper was fresh as and...cooked lovely. Chips were as we asked; well done as we like them a tad crispy. Scallops, Mussels, Oysters and potato fritters were all exceptional. It was obvious the seafood & fish was all fresh and well prepared. Yes we will be back when its Fish & Chips on our wish list and we can sit in a park to enjoy them.More

OMG it was so good we actually had it twice in our 4 night stay. Hard to find a better fish and chip shop. We ordered the ordinary everyday fish. It was battered and cooked as we waited. Soooooo good
