Decided to try out the much talked about fish and hand made chips. Very friendly welcome as we entered drinks order placed and after checking out menu we all went for the red cod fish and chips. Some with the special coleslaw and one plain, me just wanted fish and chips. I'm not a great lover of batter but the light batter on the pieces of fish melted in your mouth. You can order one, two or three pieces of fish. Menu price is for three. Delicious. Highly recommended.

We have never been disappointed with the restaurant until Friday night. We called in for takeaways - two couples - before heading up the to park and as only two tables were seated we didn't think the wait would be that long. 3/4 hour later after numerous calls in and out of the restaurant looking for our order - we were told that the restaurant had to take priority but as we had paid $ 80.00 between us, surely every customer is as important as the next. When it finally arrived we headed up the park to be disappointed even more. $7.00 for a piece of snapper that looked like the other half of the fish was missing and home cut chips that looked more like boiled potatoes cut in half and deep fried for a minute. Really disappointing from an iconic fish and chip shop that has always had such a high reputation. Don't think I would go back again sorry.

We have always been fond of seafood and as the restaurant came highly recommended and as such we thought that we should give it a try. The food was really good and fresh especially the red cod and snapper, a must have dish, really great batter and home made chips made it complete. The other meal was the seafood platter which again was lovely. The prices were reasonable but beware some of the drinks can be a bit on the expensive side. Well worth a visit.

After many years away, I returned to find the Marinovich fish as good as ever!
Okay ownership has changed since I was last here in the 90s, but the quality of fish and the service has not diminished. A very generous shrimp cocktail in an exceptional dressing, was followed by great snapper, apple coleslaw and home made chips. All washed down with a lovely rose from Central Otago. I left replete.

Peter promised us that we'd love their fish and house-made chips and he was absolutely right! Fresh, light coleslaw and friendly service topped it off.
