Description: Newfoundland's famous Fish & Chips. Celebrating 60 years in business, and is still run by the 2nd & 3rd generations of Barbours. All fresh products (except for the off fishing season) Ches's prides itself on having the best quality food that can be found. (example they hand select their "chip" potato from 6-7 samples each week for color, texture and taste)We hope to see you soon.

“All hype not worth the price”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Have tried this food a few times, Staff are disintrested is their customers and you'll wait forever for your food, quality is "so-so" but the real clincher is the rediculous prices for what you get....super expensive.

We are so sorry you feel our product is overpriced. We are actually on par with other Fish and Chips restaurants in the city, and below cost if you go to a chain restaurant somewhere. We would like to think our customers knowing that we do not use any product from a box, that we inform you when we have to use frozen fish (and use the best quality frozen we can find), the quality we take to find the perfect potato each and every week… that those things would reflect in the meal. We rarely receive complaints about the portion size, and I believe them to be quite large. We respect your review and find that these are great to fix any problems that may arise. We hope your next experience at one of our locations will find you happier at the end of the day! Thank you, Jen

Fish n chips at Ches's, well it is not the most healthy choice but if you love greasy food, then you gotta have some from Ches's cause it is one of the best in the city.

Thank you for your review. I just wanted to let you know that our food is really not as bad for you as you would think. We use a zero trans oil, we do not add salt to your meal unless you ask us to, and believe it or not 1 piece of deep fried fish is only 210 calories. And we have a full menu of heart healthy options such as salads, steamed cod fish or Salmon for those who wish to eat on the healthier side. Of course we all love to “cheat” on our diets… but now you know that you can feel better about eating Ches’s as we take time to find the most healthy way for you to enjoy our products. Thanks, Jen

“Local F&C restaurant.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

If you want a good meal of fish & chips this is where to go. They also serve chicken and other seafood items. Most food is deep fried. Located on Torbay Rd next to Sobey's and Marjorie Mews Library in the east end of the city.
