If you are going to eat fish & Chips you want them to be great not just good. These are GREAT, soft moist fish with light crisp batter and perfect chips. Delicious :-)

The fish was legit. Fresh and tasty in a great batter made on the premises (not the frozen junk you get elsewhere). The chips were enjoyable too. The best Fish and Chips I had during my travels in New Zealand. Don't bother with Styx. Just come here grab a tasty meal and eat it on a bench by the water.

We did takeout from this restaurant. The portions were a good size, the fish and chips were good and the Greek Salad was excellent.

2 pieces of cod each - no chips - enjoyed on a seat near this shop and taunted by seagulls for titbits. Not greasy - beautifully cooked.

For an Aussie, having a choice of fish type is a real treat !
We found the fish in really crunchy batter to be very pleasant and the chips nice and crisp with a decent middle.
I didn't really notice the price, because I rarely make price comparisons when travelling - expect in overtly touristy pots - which this isn't.
This establishment won't win any awards for cheery customer service, it's not that it's bad it's just non-existent - monosyllabic responses is about all you will get.
It is perfectly located to catch the passing tourist traffic, but finding a park can be a challenge and the chairs and tables outside are a bit basic - best to walk 50m along the shore to council provided seat.
Super friendly seagulls who really love the chips :-)
