Even though the restaurant was very busy, the service was with a smile and the food very tasty. A pleasant evening walk home.

Fish was ok. Pretty standard for nz. But I think people are just tired of dealing with foreigners looking up on trip advisor. Prices are higher than normal as people have said.

Thought we would come up from Hastings and have fish and chips by the beach. We were advised there would be a 20 - 25 minute wait which was fine. We ended up waiting over an hour. By this time the sun was gone and we ate in the car. The chips were barely cooked and a very small portion.... More

This Fish Cafe is a must visit to either eat in or take away. Food and service is 10/10 so often eat here. We also preordered and paid for a large take out for a function at our house which was ready at the pre-arranged time and to top standard. All our guests agreed the food was the best Fish... More

This fish shoo is an absolute gem! We visited after reading some great reviews and we were not disappointed. We ordered gurnard and the blue cod with grapes and almonds, which was absolutely divine! It could be served in a gourmet restaurant any day. Great, friendly service by the staff. We'll definitely be back!

Fish & chips were one of the best I've had. Chowder was thick, close to rissotto consistency, tasty nonetheless. Children loved the lego tray. Staff are friendly and attentive.

I went here due to good reviews and was rapt to find that it was very close to my motel. Seated immediately as it was empty...due to it being very early. Ordered the salt n pepper squid for entree and blue cod meal for main. The squid was a let down to be honest. Unless squid is fresh it shouldn't... More

Great fish and chips and lots on entertaining news clips on the walls to keep you amused while you wait. Only 2 minor points: 1. Fish portions v small so maybe get double; and 2. We asked to transfer our order from takeaway to sit in but they told us that this wasn't possible - which was surprising. Anyhow great... More

Off to the beach with fish and chips to enjoy a summer evening in Napier. The fish - hoki, was very nice fish and beautifully crumbed. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We'll be back for sure! Staff were very friendly.

Paper-wrapped Fish & Chips with the family, got takeaway and sat down at the beach. Went on recommendation from a 'local' and wasn't disappointed. Something for everyone, and could have sat in the dining room if it wasn't so tempting to enjoy the sunshine and give the kids a chance to play outdoors! Reasonably priced, and cooked fresh!
