The fish and chips were excellent and reasonably priced. A bonus is you can take your meal into the Mangonui Hotel next door and enjoy a cold beer or any other refreshment with lunch.

This seafood chowder was worth the 6 hour drive! Full of seafood, piping hot and perfectly tasty. The Huz had snapper and chips and couldn't finish his huge plate full. As someone else noted, it was lovely to have nice China and be served from a tray brought to our table. Nice touches and yet great priced meals. The staff... More

Just like it says - fresh and tasty. Good choice of fish. Round the side of the hotel - itself an interesting building. There are booths inside that looked cosy but it was a hot night so we sat at the outside tables with harbour view while unfortunate souls who had arrived too late shook the bars of the gate... More

If you are in mangonui for takeaway fish and chips this is the place to go. Not a huge selection but great value for money.
