Recommended by Te Puna Wai Lodge, this place gets top rating even though it does not really fit the category of restaurant. The fish and chips are delightful, go for the blue nose if there is any: exceptional! Friendly service, large selection. You can either...More

We had lovely fresh fish & chips on a mild spring evening from Haven Fish & Chips by the port in Nelson. Despite being quite busy the wait was only 10-15 minutes before the helpful staff wrapped our order. There was a choice of fish...More
