A high rating on Trip Advisor AND a recommendation from our hotel staff made this an obvious choice. It was early Wednesday afternoon and the place was packed so it was also a good sign. While waiting, a client questioned her order and a staff member actually argued with her and got quite aggressive. We ended up waiting almost an... More

Having just arrived, done our shopping and were not going out again decided to head to have fish and chips. Wow what a great choice, so glad we did, may have had to wait a bit but they were delicious and really hit the spot. A place NOT to miss.

Chanced upon this place as I drove around Tauranga. Seemed popular with people lined up waiting. We waited 15minutes for our order to come through. Fish was fresh. Chips were standard. Did not see any sauce that I could order with the food. None was suggested either. One could sit and eat at covered space or outdoor seats besides the... More

The fish was fresh and wonderful, probably one of the best fish from a fish and chips I've ever had, the tartare sauce was also tasty. I also recommend trying the prawns, I'm usually not a fan of them, but those were delightful. The beautiful view of the sea was a definite plus. Only bad notes were the chips that... More

My hubby and I use to regularly have dinner at Bobbys on The Strand or rather Dive Cres Tauranga. Get there early to avoid a line up. Worth the wait anyway! Always lovely fish. So fresh.

This is an icon of Tauranga that frequently wins the Best Fish and Chips award. Superb fish and chips cooked fresh. Generous servings on a tray or wrapped as you wish. Sit at tables right by the water, outside or under a shelter. Bring your own extras. I once had a dinner party for ten ( I used one of... More

Nice fresh battered snapper at a reasonable price. One of the best snapper I had so far in New Zealand.

Our motel recommended this seafood restaurant by the waterfront which is a local favorite. Bobby's sells numerous kinds of fish and fresh seafood. Pick your preferred one and they will weigh and fry it immediately- like a fish and chip restaurant. Fries have to be order separately. If you are not a big fries eater, order one portion and it...
