Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Another great feed of fish & chips. Very light batter, not greasy & crispy yet fluffy chips. Fantastic Sunday lunch after a morning's work

The snapper was succulent & sweet, batter was crisp & chips sensational. The food was terrific for a cheap, no frills place but the staff were bored, disinterested & clearly wishing they were elsewhere. Must be quite something in peak season.

Enjoyed a delicious meal of fresh battered fish, chips and salad. The fish was very tasty with just the right amount of batter. We ate this on the deck overlooking the water. Lovely friendly staff as well.

Not very good actually. Extremely oily, turned my stomach. The oil they use repeated on me for hours. I don’t have a delicate stomach so that was unusual for me. I have to say I agree with some of the other reviews. The fish wasn’t...fantastic either. Batehaven does have a good fish n chip shop. It is worth ducking out there. Very disappointing.More

Went here in the afternoon for some fish and chips. They never disappoint and the fish always tastes fresh and is what they say it is.

This was no doubt the WORST fish and chip experience in my life. I ordered the Cod, which was the freshest looking fish in the window. More about this later… Medium chips, calamari and potato scallops. The food was incredibly greasy and heavy. I felt...immediately sick afterwards. Now, back to the “Cod”. This fish is mislabelled. It is in fact, as I found out later, actually a fish called Rudderfish! Please google it. If you eat more than a very small portion you get horrid oily yellow discharge from your skin and even bad diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting! So buyers beware, this fish is very low cost and mostly discarded by other fishmongers because of these effects.More

Took friends to Innes Boat shed for lunch. Ordered fish, chips and salad to sit outside. The fish was awful. It was stringy and you couldn’t cut it with their wooden knife. The calamari was too tough to eat and the garden salad for $8...was a premix very bitter and inedible. All in all a waste of money at $58 per couple. This would be the most overrated fish and chips in the Bay. Drive the distance and buy your meal from Bernie’s at Batehaven. Well worth it. I do not recommend this place at all!!!!More

Revolting. Fish, calamari and chips tasted like old oil that hadn't been changed in months. The fish was fresh, but the oily, stinky batter ruined it. The calamari was rubbery, the chips were hardly cooked. Literally inedible, we threw ours in the bin after spending...$40! Wasn't worth eating something that tasted so terrible. We will never be back. Don't go here unless you enjoy the stink of old oil.More

The fried ling was delicious - such light and crispy batter, and soft, fresh fish. And the chips were nicely crunchy yet soft inside. Possibly the best fried fish I have had in a long time, but the price was rather high for a small...piece of fish from a take-away fish&ship place.More

We had $19 fish n chips, and calami at $1.50 per ring The Calamari was like rubber bands. The fish was so dry it was like stringy chicken and tasted like cardboard. Also overcooked, plus weird taste from the oil. Awful stuff.

Very surprised by how good the fried fish was. You get to choose the fish fillet and then they fry it for you. Our cod fish was unbelievably good. So creamy inside I had to check if it was really fish ! One serving is...definitely not enough.More
