Friendly and helpful staff! Nicely cooked fish and crisp chips. Convenient location (opposite countdown supermarket). Small piece of fish, but enough for a meal - probably reflective of fuel prices! Winner!

First time there tonight, absolutely delicious. Chips were cooked to perfection, the fish fresh and tasty. Friendly staff. Best fish and chips I've ever tasted.

I’ve been getting fish and chips here for a while, but recently a friend told me about their homemade mussel Pattie, so I tried it and wasn’t disappointed. It was huge, and chock full of mussels with a very crispy coating. I’ll be getting one...every time from now on!More

Had the gurnard, it tasted old and not fresh. Good portion size. Crunchy batter. Shame the fish wasn’t good.

Ordered the elephant fish, squid rings and chips. The whole thing was unbelievably greasy, probably the worst I’ve ever had. The fish was over cooked and the batter was very thick and not palatable. Even the chips weren’t good. I’ve only been here once so...this may be a one off however I won’t be testing the theory.More

We had a great fish and chip meal from here. There is lots of seating if you want to eat in, a very casual and friendly vibe. The staff friendly and efficient. What more could you ask for.

The best fish and chips we’ve had in ages. The batter on the fish was delicious. Nice clean fat. Service was prompt. Will definitely be back next time we’re in Picton.
