Ok so I appreciate quality but chips are chips and their two scoop portion would barely be one in my Canterbury home town! Come down to support local and I literally fell off my stool looking at the $8 bag of chips. Good job the...OCR hasn’t moved and we are paying low mortgages because I need to go buy more dinner.. Don’t get me wrong the quality was spot on but come on. Chips are chips.More

Total tourist trap. $10.50 for a piece of blue cod! And it was so small with a thick oily batter. Wouldn’t go backMore

We ate here 2 times during our summer stay in Wanaka. The blue cod is freshly battered each order and the chips are fresh and delicious. Would recommend it highly. Thanks to the team at The Catch for making our lake side dining a hit

Possibly the best fish and chips I’ve ever had! Huge portions of fish. Tastes even better with the lake view. ‘Nuf said.

Got fish and chips to eat on a table outside. We were mobbed by seagulls that took food out of your hand and ducks under the table and sparrows. Was quite funny. Fish and chips was pretty average, a bit too greasy for me but...partner said it was ok. Sit on the lake front near someone with a dog to get peace.More

At Wanaka with stunning views what better way to dine then fish and chips (and a bottle of wine) at the lake front. Had Blue Cod and chips from Catch it was a Tuesday evening with one person working in the shop at taking orders...and cooking, She was super efficient having owned a fish and chip shop I would snap up an employee like that. We had a good helping of fish and chips we were happy with the value for money. Why an excellent the whole experience great fish and chips and a stunning view by the lake, do it.More
