It is just a little shop and tables and awnings outside where you sit down for your meal ! But when you get your fish and chips you soon realise that you are eating the best fish and chips you have ever eaten ! The...fish is so fresh and delicious and the chips are perfect ! They do not make the mistake many places do of over using the oil which creates a bitter taste ! You can tell their oil is fresh ! 100% value for money !! I LOVE THIS PLACE !!!More

Great seafood take-away. Friendly atmosphere. Quality of food is consistently good. Prices are becoming a bit steep - especially for a largish family.

Fresh calamari with a decent portion they will see me again for a full portion calamari deep fried. Also try the calamari burger.

Best seafood in J-bay!!! The fish and all other items we ordered were very tasty. We tried it once and kept going back for more. The friendly faces behind the counter adds value and we thank you for your friendly service. In season you better...phone in your order as it can get very busy and waiting periods of an hour is not uncommon.More

I'm a sucker for a great fish & chips lunch (as can be seen from my other reviews) and the lunch I had there ticked all the right boxes. Freshest hake that I had in a while and arguably the best fried chips I've had...this year. Very reasonable pricing and friendly staff means a definite re-visit soon!More

Trawlers, always a treat. Still standing strong after years in Jbay. A defenete go to when we can’t decide what’s for dinner. Hake and Chips with salt and vinegar over the chips and a portion of calamari is a winner.

I will go again if I can. The chips is lovely and crispy. The fish has no bones in it. The waiters are energetic and friendly. They spark. Many happy memories. I love to eat there.
