Found this place via TA. Was really happy we drove out to it. Both got the blue cod, one battered and one fried, some squid rings and garlic chips. Fish was great and the batter was so light and crispy. Chips were nice but wouldn't get garlic chips again though (had never had this before, for those like us that don't know what it is, it's chips with garlic butter). Staff were really friendly and service was really quick. If your in the area would recommend coming here.

The takeaway section was standing room only at 6:30pm on Saturday. We chose to have crumbed gurnard and 1 1/2 scoops of chips. This amount of chips proved to be just right for the two of us, as the fish was large. They were wrapped separately which is a great thing to do. The staff were very friendly and well presented in their branded clothing.

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 straight away but once worked in, the quality of the meals and service went back up to what we were used to. We can wholeheartedly recommend the pan fried blue cot as an excellent meal: good amount of fish, delicious sauce and first class fries. All delivered with a smile!

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 cooked freshly and delivered promptly with a smile. Grilling as well as fried option for cooking of fish. There was also a small restaurant attached for people wanting to eat in. Worth a visit
