Ordered the seafood fest grilled. The scallops were big, tender, juicy pieces. Totally stole the show. Also had head-on shrimp, mussels, squid. The cole slaw was perfection— just enough mayo but very light. Ordered special catch fish with it with kumara fries. I usually don’t...More

Took a trip to Kaikoura via the inland road and feeling peckish, I dropped into Cooper's Catch for something to eat. I had blue cod and chips, took 10 mins to arrive and it was delicious. Would have preferred a bigger bit of fish though.

Cod was great, chips were good, service was a little slow but friendly - overall good experience. Importantly, as stated, the fish is great. Would definitely return.

Highly recommend cooper's catch for blue cod and chips. Have been here twice while in Kaikoura for work and it will become a must do if I am in Kaikoura again.

Best fresh fish I have tasted, fantastic takeaways. We ate ours on the beachfront washed down with a cold beer

Some of the best fish & chips I've ever had. The fish tasted fresh and delicious, my partner and I opted for two different pieces of fish, while both were good the blue cod was exceptional. Definitely worth a visit.
