Fresh fish with the best batter thus far! Had many F&C in Adelaide and on the way towards Melbourne, and this is still the best and unforgettable, though slightly more expensive

After a one day tour of Kangaroo Island we had a short time to get some dinner before catching the ferry. The fish and chips were yummy but a bit expensive and you needed your credit card if you wanted whiting.

Wonderful location, this small place offers the best fish and chips i've ever tasted! Too bad we arrived late and I could not taste all of the dishes!

Stopped over for a quick Fish and Chips, after an exhausting day tour. The place is so popular that u have to wait for upto 10 mins to pick up your meal. The lady at the counter warns u not to whine about the delay. The fish (Hake) was amazing and filling.

My family and I just had dinner from there and it was awful! The range of food was extremely limited, the service was rude, the fish overcooked, and the price was over the top. This is the problem with not having any competition in the area. We also got a few pizzas next door - they were great! Give the... More

We were here on a cruise and the line was well out the door for this place. We ordered fish and chips and were not disappointed well worth the wait. The chairs and tables are very minimal however you could sit across the road and look out over the water.

Kangaroo Island isn't food heaven, this you should keep in mind when selecting your restaurant for lunch or dinner. Therefore 'Fish' is a very good place for a down-to-earth dinner where you don't spend a fortune for rubbish. The fish was very good, the chips homemade. You can sit at tables on the sidewalk, enjoy the view towards the sea.... More
