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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had high hopes but the chips and burgers were very average. Overcooked chips and dried out burger buns. The battered fish was good according to the kids. Overall - disappointing.

We popped in here for lunch and ordered fish and chips for $5. The food was deliciously cooked and amazing value for money as where else do you get fish and chips so cheap?! What a bargain and whilst there was a wait, it was...worth waiting for.More

Very casual but far more than just a takeaway fish shop. Licensed, table service, amazing salads and so many options, including Indonesian (surfer heaven) and so much gluten free! We’re heading back.

Centrally located in Burley Heads and the fish was so worth the visit. Fresh and tastie. Scallops another winner. What was also good was the ‘deal’…. Fish and chips for $5. More than enough and great value. This cafe also advertises gluten free which is...a rarity. Again, good quality , however the ‘deal’ doesn’t extend to people with coeliac and so more expensive.More

We have had good quality food here before but today the "snapper" was like frozen mush fish. At $17 per serve that has changed our view on the place. Happy to pay for the real thing but not sure what we ate today. Left a...bad taste literally.More

Always great food, the $5 fish and chips are great value and a perfect option . Sometimes the chips can be a bit oily but when they aren't they are amazing, fluffy inside and crunchy on the outside with a great flavour. The fish is...fresh and so flakey as pixtured. as a whole the food is usually consistently great and service is friendly and quick!More

As per the heading, this place is for real. As fish n chips lovers we ordered cod, potato scallops, chips, sweet potato chips, and seafood sticks. besides th seafood sticks, all was 10/10 and couldn't be faulted for anything. Staff are great, atmosphere great and...plenty of people. We rated this ten fold over fishmonger around the corner and definitely in top 5 fish n chips for the gold coast.More
