Service with a smile, fresh, hot take away. Would have to agree with prior comments of “best fish and chips on the island”. May not look much from the outside but don’t let that fool you.

Lovely friendly service and delightful food. The only disappointing thing was they closed at 3pm on Sunday so had to find somewhere else for our fish & chips.

Is this the best fish and chips on Phillip Island? (take away). It's probably 'up there'. Fish: Whiting, flake etc is very tasty, chips are good too. Staff: super friendly and very efficient

From the outside maybe not but the food was amazing. The grilled flake had lemon and pepper on it and the best I've had in a long time.

We bought lunch here last week on our holiday and the food was great as my kids ate it all up! Which is a good indicator 😊
