Unashamedly I went to Bens five times whilst at Surfers and you can't knock the consistency when it comes to serving first class fish and chips. The battered Barramundi was out of this world and for an avid fish lover it is certainly up there as one of the best fish and chip meals I have eaten. Highly recommended and... More

Just bumped into the shop, staff was extremely friendly. We ordered the signature classic Cod and a Fish Cake. Cod with the right batter, fried just right with thick cod meat. Chips are crispy enough. Great deal.

We had fish and chips the day after Boxing Day. The service was fast and the food tasted magnificent. The chocolate milkshake was a bit pricey at $7 but it was really good. We felt we paid a premium price but it was a premium location looking across the road at the beach. Yum! We recommend you visit.

We just had the special of the day, which was a huge piece of fish, chips and salad. It's right on the beach and very popular (must be good).

We were tired after a long day trip so popped in here to get fish and chips takeaway. The staff were really helpful and the fish and chips were actually one of the best we have ever had! It does not look much from the outside but I would really rate this place and we hope to go here again... More

The portions were a good size, and the food was good, but the atmosphere was incredible! The location (just across from the beach.) make this a great stop while taking in the sights...

Absolutely loved the food we purchased from here. Yummiest chicken burger I've tasted. Affordable and has such a nice view of Surfers Paradise. Has outdoor seating to soak up the sun and the view.
