Our Friday date night spot. Food and service excellent. Down to earth. Fish fresh and cooked to perfection. Consistently great.

We bought a big family pack which was great and fresh and fed our family of 5 with some leftover. Great fast service. Loved the fact that you can walk into the shop and not be hit by old oil smells.

I have dined at this Cafe several times over the years. Ownership changes from time to time but quality of the food is always excellent. On my recent visit the scallops and blue cod were both delectable.

We have been loyal customers of the Westshore Fish Cafe since several years now. When it changed hands (a couple of years ago) we did wonder whether this place would survive as the new owners had big shoes to fill. They didn't get everything right...More

I was staying at a nearby motel and my mobility was restricted so was pleasantly surprised to be pointed to this little gem. Selling all the usual stuff you'd expect at a classic kiwi chippy, with six varieties of fish to choose from, food was...More
