Quite simply the best fish and chip restaurant in the area bar none. Really great fish and chips, good sized portions on both the main and kids menu. Friendly relaxed atmosphere. We go to this restaurant every time we visit Torquay.

Long queues, overpriced fish and chips. Didn't think it was worth the money. Chios weren't cooked enough. Was very disappointed as I'd heard so much about this place. There are better fish and chip shops in Torquay!

Probably the best fish and chips shop in the country. Freshly cooked at all times. Worth leaving Torquay to eat this meal on the Babbacombe Downs. If you like fish and chips this is a must

Our favourite fish and chip shop in Torbay. We always pay a visit when we are down and the food is consistently good. We generally order cod or haddock and chips, rather than anything more exotic from the menu. The staff are friendly and helpful, restaurant is clean and welcoming and actually I don't think prices are too high. Admittedly... More

The kids were given very good kids pack of colouring books... More

We had intended to have dinner at the restaurant, but it was fully booked and we were too hungry to wait, so we went to their chip shop next door. We had to wait around 10 minutes after ordering as it was very busy (understandably so when we tasted our food!). We ate our food sat on the clifftop overlooking... More
