This is really a nice place. Went there for lunch with my son. We ordered the fish and fries. We took the hake fillets. Done to perfection in a light batter. Nice big crispy fries and some sources to choose from. This is a keeper....More

Well worth the visit! Close to the city centre with a great atmosphere. It was fairly busy when we came, however, got seated within a few minutes. Portion size was definitely worth the price, highly recommend both the curry panko and lemon basil tempura.

Fresh Sustainable Fish & Chips Concept. Fresh fish only at our beloved restaurant where we are trying to change the style of traditional Fish & Chips by using our very own 'street food' interpretation of the classic British dish. We are influenced by cuisines & cultures from all over the world and love the challenge of creating new styles regularly. We have a small restaurant so we cannot take reservations. With 30+ recipes, 20+ sauces & over 25 types of sustainable fish that change weekly we hope you find your style! EAT MORE FISH. Bia Mara
