Without any doubt whatsoever, the greatest fish and chips my family has ever tasted. Crumbed fish (blue cod) was superb, and the chips sensational!

We had an amazing experience catching our own fish today with Koura Bay Fishing and we're informed by them to take it to Coopers Catch for them to cook it up. We followed this advice and weren't disappointed. The fish just melted in your mouth!!

Stayed in Kaikoura for 7 months Nov 17 - May18. Family favourite, but it is very popular you are waiting for quite some time. But worth the wait! Great variety to choose from and they also offer takeaway dessert options too!

Crumbled fish of the day was delicious - well worth the extra couple of dollars over the regular battered fish. Great chips and all reasonably priced.
