Lovely piece of skate and hake served up by a very friendly waitress. Proper chip shop chips! If you want a slice of traditional Brixham this is the place to go.

Visited today for the first time and was really impressed firstly the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant was spotlessly clean and welcoming. We all found our fish and chips to be very tasty and looking forward to coming back again very soon.

We frequently visited the Rio Fish Restaurant during our holidays throughout the 60's and 70's and found it excellent with regular staff and management. Nice fish and excellent chips, soft on the inside and crisp on the outside!
