If you are craving traditional British food, this is the place to go to. The flagship food is obviously fish 'n' chips, and it was great to see that the place offered sides of mashed peas. They also have the option of mashed potatoes, as well as other foods like bangers and mash, and pies.

The haddock I took was freshly battered and fried, and it tasted well enough, however something was missing, perhaps the fish itself was not prepared to the best conditions. A bit improvement in the recipe might go a long way to further polish up this diner.

The fish and chips sold here are not even remotely comparable to the authentic fish and chips sold in England. I had such high expectations however I was bitterly disappointed. Chips were soggy and the fish tasted of oil. I do not recommend this place if you're looking for the English fish and chips!

This is our second review of this fish bar - we visited last year whilst on holiday and came back this year to eat again. Still as good as ever. The fish and chips are gorgeous. The pie and chips too are great - and served with lovely gravy. There are a few tables outside or seating inside. We ate outside and watched the world go by whilst eating freshly cooked cod and chips. All food is freshly cooked to order and lovely and hot. This fish bar is just like and English fish and chip shop - well worth a visit. Keep up the good work - and see you again next year.

A bright and airy fish and chip shop with limited seating mainly laid out as a bar/stool arrangement and limited seating available outside, adjacent to a busy road. The quality of the food varies dependent on the 'fryer'. A regular visitor, usually the quality is what you would expect from a chippy in the UK for better value. Unfortunately, on occasions, both the fish and the chips are overcooked. I have a healthy appetite and usually struggle to finish the generous portions. They tend to wait to give you your drinks until your food comes but a request for these straight away is never a problem. A word of warning - the pepper comes out of the shakers in masses. If the quality of food was more consistent I would have given a Very Good Rating. Nevertheless, the best chippy I have come across on my various European travels.

Had lunch. Had cod and plaice with chips along with onion rings and mushrooms.
1/2 bottle of donnafugata cost us €10! A rip off.
Fast food comes at a price nowadays.
Will not be back.
