Chose Flippers based on the large number of people ordering. Always a good sign. Ordered calamari and chips. A five minute wait while it was cooked to order. Excellent squid rings. Moist on the inside and crispy coating. Good chips too.

We were looking forward to sampling some Tasmanian seafood, which we had heard rave reviews about. This experience was beyond disappointing. Chips and calamari were OK. The flake was inedible - I’ve never had such dry, chewy and overcooked fish. Given the family pack was...around $32, I’d expected much better. Wouldn’t go back or recommend.More

We visited flippers on a recent stay in Hobart. Such wonderful service and yummy hot chips. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch on a cold autumn day! Thank you.

Really enjoyed quality fish and chips with some calamari and prawn cutlets sitting on the wharf in the sunshine. Good quality

Floating food truck located at Constitution Dock. Food is cooked to order so very fresh. Plenty of people lining up and seafood was fresh. Benches to sit on the dock available to eat your meal. Would recommend.

We ate here a few times and during peak hours you will need to be patient and wait a while but the food is really good.

My partner and I regularly visit flippers when we're craving fish & chips, and their service and food is consistently fantastic. Definitely not cheap, but always worth the money, much more so than some significantly larger places in the area.

We ordered flake and chips which were perfectly cooked, batter nice and thin on the fish, chips golden and crunchy. Service, given that they are always busy, was friendly and efficient. We noted lots of Hobartians drive to the dock, order and take their dinners...home.More

Batter on fish was not cooked well and the fish was dry and bland. Chips and calamari were okay. Salad was very small for a family meal deal but fresh.
