This place took a bit of finding but provides friendly service with fairly good Fish and chips. The portions were generous and the fish was fresh..just missing the magic touch that you get from the best fish and chip shops.

A Plaice in the sun is a typical English Fish and Chip Shop that's been relocated to Playa Blanca. The owner Jeff is a really friendly guy as his partner. The only thing against him is the fact that he is a Leeds FC supporter for his sins. My wife and I went there on a whim after she read... More

Decided to visit this chip shop after reading Tripadvisor reviews & not wanting a restaurant meal one evening of our holiday. My husband was very pleased to find they served Pukka Pies & I had chicken goujons. The food was very good, the service friendly and the glass of rose wine at €2.50 was very nice too. Would recommend!

This is not a restaurant, as such, it is a fish and chip shop that has some outside tables. Half of them are inside a large concrete shopping complex, drowned out by the noise of bars in the evening, the other half are outside with views of the bay. The fish and chips are fine, but is this the best... More

Not our normal sort of eatery when on holidays .... why look for what you can get at home?? That said, this place (or should I say plaice) is excellent. Quick and friendly service with good quality simple fish n chips

The fish was lovely but sadly the chips were not. The chips were supposed to proper chips but we're definitely frozen. The owner was very nice and told us we did not have to pay for chips and was glad we told him they were not up to standard.. A lady who came in after us had better looking chips... More
