“Cook refused to grill a piece of fish!”

Poor service! The cook refused to grill a piece of fish! Would only serve it fried and battered which suited some members of our family, but not all! The response we got when we asked was “we get a lot of requests for that but the cook refuses to do it!” We had already bought salad and were looking forward to fish and chips for dinner. Now I am going back to the supermarket to buy a can of tuna! Ugh!

Wow - you can just tell by the queues outside that this place is great - fabulous fish and chips - don’t leave it too long in the evenings as it seems they shut earlier than their advertised hours

We'd just come down from the Tirohanga Track and were peckish for lunch and didn't want to return on the shuttle to our cruise ship. Anyway we were in NZ and therefore had to have fish and chips! Quite popular and as other reviewers have stated only one woman taking both the orders and doing the cooking. Anyway got to chat to the people waiting for our Blue Cod and two scoops of chips. Plenty of fish to choose from. After a wait we went down to the lawn on the harbourside for our lunch. NIce size fish and plenty of chips.

Got charged 9.00 for 2 bits of crumbed fish the long skinny captains choice type you buy in a pack of ten at the supermarket. It certainly Wasn't the crumbled john dory . I asked for. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

We called in here last weekend. There was only one lady on both the counter and cooking so she was under the pump and obviously took a while to get served and also for the food. A local mentioned that this is the best fish and chip shop in Picton. We certainly enjoyed our gurnard however the chips were very yellow and not very salty.
