I had a fish cocktail, potato scallop and calamari ring. They were all tasty and I really liked them! The staff brought my meal to my seat. There was a bit of a wait as they started making the food after ordering, but I was satisfied that I was able to eat them freshly made.👍
I can't believe anyone would rate this place anything less than 5 stars. It offers the best fish and chips along with exceptional service. My husband and I were on a quest for fish and chips on our last day of vacation before heading back to Sydney, and it's a shame we didn't discover this gem earlier! We tried the cold pack seafood (prawns, crab, and oysters), fish cocktails, calamari rings, and chips – all deserving a perfect 10/10. The fish cocktails were delightfully light and crispy with generous amounts of fish. The staff was incredibly friendly, consistently checking in to ensure we were enjoying our meal. There's even an ice cream shop next door with delicious treats. We left feeling extremely satisfied!
I haven't had takeaway in a long time from anywhere including maccas as the oil they used was older than time!!! Aussie Bob thanks for cooking in clean oil??!!!! Will see you again next time we are in your part of the woods 🪵
This is what a true fish and chip shop should be.
You wont find exceptional service or a fancy menu here. What you will find is hearty fish and chips how they should be.
I have had fish and chips all across NZ and Australia so I have big expectations when it comes to fish and chips. Aussie Bobs really did deliver.
The plan was to order and take it down to the beach, but the wind was cold and it was getting dark so we decided to 'dine in', which was a big patio area with large picnic tables.
At the time there were a few other tables of families, one table of what looked like a group of friends, and a few couples. In addition to the tables, there were locals standing waiting for their takeaway orders - this is always a good sign when locals eat here too.
After you have ordered and paid, you will be given a number. When your food is ready your number will be called, or they will bring your food out to you if you are dining in.
As much as the burgers looked tempting, I decided to stick to the classic fish and chips, though I did get a spring roll and a battered sav on the side.
The fish was good, cooked just how I like, and the chips were good. If I was to be fussy, they could have done with more salt BUT they had thought of that and they give you sachets of salt with your meal. It makes sense for you to add more as you can't salt off if there is too much. One thing I did not check is if they had had offered chicken salt.
The spring roll was very tasty. The portion of fish and chips was very generous for what I paid. I got the side dishes because I have been burnt before at other fish and chip stores with tiny portions walking away still hungry, but that will not happen here.
Overall I really enjoyed my food at Aussie Bobs. It certainly quenched my craving for a good feed of fish and chips.
Best fish & chips. Great selection, friendly staff and fast service. We ordered a classic fish and chips, a grilled barra and some salt and pepper squid and fried calamari. Everything was really fresh, nice and hot and the battered fish was perfect not really heavy and oily where you feel sick afterwards. We ordered and took it to the pier to enjoy there. We’ll be back!
