Burnt, greasy and quite possibly the worst chips I have ever eaten. Despite all the hype I would not visit again

We had the daily special £6.50 for fish and chips, bread and butter and cup of tea. Meal was fresh and of good quality and quantity. Served by a very nice friendly member of staff. All in all very good value for money.

We visit Rio Fish and Chip shop every year when we visit Brixham, the food is incredible and always fresh. As soon as you go in the order is taken and the food is cooked to a very high standard. Staff are very friendly and always accommodate your needs. Thank you all see you again soon.

Two shandies and a fruit shoot for... More

Had large cod and chips and they were the tastiest I have had in a long time. Very tasty fish, crispy batter and chips weren't covered in grease. 10/10 fully recommend

I had eaten here several years ago when on a trip with my boy. This time, we were on a family holiday, had finished our activities for the day and decided to hunt down the restaurant. Fish and chips were fantastic, the better half said the curry sauce was the best she had had, and the service very friendly. Couldn't... More
