I used vouchers in The Mercury for October school holidays and was very pleased with my entire experience. The portion of fish and chips was just right, and a juice box was included too. Recently they have added Valhalla ice cream and live music , just to make it even better. Sit outside and admire The Lady Nelson, one of... More

The crumbed fish was a little bit overcooked, but the chips were crisp on the outside & fluffy on the inside. Just right. Busy little place on the Elizabeth St pier, handy to Salamanca market place & Hobart's CBD.

Just the place to go for fish and chips. Served in a cone you can have fish battered or in breadcrumbs. A great selection from the various types of fish and seafood. Also a good choice of wines. Can't go wrong visiting this restaurant.

We ordered the fish and chips. They were very good but quite expensive. The location on the waterfront was lovely. The service was quick.

Excellent selection of fish and seafood and nicely presented. Very busy, which is probably a good sign. Ideal location, too, for the wonderful harbourside of Hobart.

Like a fancy fish and chip shop with great food. Everything we had was awesome! The best oysters we had while in Tasmania. Fish and chips were great, best chips. This is a must. Loved it. Even when they were super busy the staff were friendly and helpful. Just go you won't be sorry! And it's on the water!!!

We visited this restaurant 10 years ago and on a recent trip back to Hobart found it again, introduced a family member to it and liked it so much we went twice. We had the fish burger and fish wraps, nothing fancy but great food and the service was so very fast. Great value for money. Highly recommend and will... More

Simply put, was no better then the fish and chips you can get from your local fish and chip shop. Yet the price tag it 3 x that you would pay and a better serving at your local. $18 for 2 half size fish fillets, about the size of a potato cake. Chips were nice and crunchy. Just your average...
