We have done the worlds most famous fish and chip eatery, well standby for one better. Recommended by many Mangonui locals is Fresh and Tasty which is part of the local pub. Quite frankly I have never had better fish and chips with the Gunard...More

Ok, this is not gourmet, no white linen, so why an "excellent" rating? For Fish & Chips it is the best I've experienced, both for the food quality and the friendly family-style service. Glad we avoided the touristy spots and came to Fresh & Tasty....More

Avoid the tourists who go to the Mangonui Fish shop - this is where it happens! Really fresh, good value and handy for everything.
