Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 October 2015

Even though I am over 50, and not a snob I don't need to be called "Sir", and I can put up with "Mate" by some, but it definitely grates when some young lady serving me at a fish and chip shop calls me "BUDDY".
Having said this, I cannot go past the Pine's for the best fish and chips in the area, and the young bloke who has taken over this business from his lovely mother is doing an excellent job and even he often calls me sir, which he has no need to. The servings are always generous the prices are reasonable and generally the service is very good. I have tried others but apart from the Ocean Breeze fish and chips in Newport this is by far worth going out of my way for.

Over summer they lift their game noticeably since they are far busier so don't be fooled by that…

I have had an inedible beef burger, destroyed pieces of fish, and generally very poor quality food from here so we wrote them off after a few times. How you can stuff up fried food and burgers etc I don't know.

Service is absolutely awful every time, it's as if they think they are doing you a favour by charging you for their food , no concept of customer service at all

Sorry buts it's a dirty poorly presented 70's style fish and chips shop with terrible food and service

Go up to civic parade it's infinitely better

It is always hard to differentiate between beach side fish and chippery shops. So far I have not encountered a bad one yet. My husband and I decided to venture out to Altona beach on the weekend. We discovered a gem. Sat down at the nearby park with our fisherman basket order for 2. Chunky and crunchy chips. Battered fish. Light and fluffy on the inside. Perfect consistency. Loved the fried calamari and crab sticks. Not to mention the fried scallops are to die for. Had a great time enjoying our fish and chips lunch in beautiful beach side setting and sunny weather. Reasonable priced as well.
