Grabbed a quick bite here twice whilst at the wharf. It's good fish and chips and cost is reasonable. Sit on the benches or take it away. Busy times you may wait 5-10 minutes for your food.

Really simple concept. Cod and chips. Freshly cooked using very basic ingredients. Not so much a restaurant, more a food truck. Definitely worth a visit (if fish & chips is your thing).

Took a a little while to track this place down, but worth it. Had fish and scampi combo, it was enough for two. You have to try the deep fried Oreos! Amazing.

Well cooked, fresh fish at a reasonable price. You could tell the fish was fresh and the serves were generous, without being over the top. Good sized shrimp (prawns) as well.

This place is worth to try because the quality of the food is remarkable. Try the fish and chips. It is a combination on good cooking skill and best material.

Turn left out of the Tuscan Inn heading West towards the Golden Gate Bride - walk approx 2 blocks to Jones Street - turn right on Jones Street and you will see us on the corner of Jones and Beach! See you soon, Madeleine
