Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

If you want to eat Cod with chips or a Cod Burger, this is the best place in Bluff. The price is fair and the staff is very friendly.

We were in Bluff at lunchtime on a beautiful summer's day and thought it would be nice to have fish and chips for lunch along the waterfront. We ordered hoki and chips and were so disappointed to find that the hoki fillets weren't fresh but...were the frozen packaged ones you get in a supermarket. For an area that is known for its seafood we didn't expect this. We get much nicer (and cheaper) fish and chips from our local fish and chip shop in the middle of the city!More

My wife and I ordered 6 oysters each, a piece of Blue Cod and Half a scoop of chips. Cost $53!!! The batter on the oysters was too thick and ruined them totally. The blue cod was nice. Chips not the best either. Seagulls got...a feed too. Bluff is a little too run down with empty buildings everywhere. Tourists come from far and wide to catch a ferry to Stewart Island and Bluff is not a good look.More
