Came in here for a fast evening meal and it was wonderful, friendly staff and a lovely large portion size. It’s also good value for money. I had the blue cod and chips which was great! Would definitely recommend.

You hear people say "it melted in your mouth". That was exactly how we found the fish at Coopers Catch Kaikoura. So very fresh and perfectly cooked. Best fish I have ever tasted.

By far the yummiest fish and chips I've had since my 4 years of living in NZ! Friendly staff and good service. We ate our fish and chips by the beach. Good food + relaxing view was just perfect.
