Deciding on fish and chips we went to Snapper Jack’s since it was the highest rated one in Whitianga on Trip Advisor. The service was dreadful, with the staff member yawning her way through our order. When paying by EFTPOS she just walked off and sat down, yawning some more. The food was crispy, but very oily. The serving of kumara chips was very small, as was the serving of regular chips and they ran out of potato fritters. We’d been looking forward to this, but were sadly disappointed.

After a very long drive from Paihia we stopped here for a quick bite. Was not disappointed, everything was great, I had a burger and chips my partner had battered sausages and chips. It was just was we needed to satisfy our hunger.

Easter weekend the wait time was 45 mins but after reading the good reviews we waited.
The food was good but our order was mixed up (bearing in mind they where out the door with orders)
The battered sausage was delish - proper pork sausage & the fish was fresh ;)
There are quiet a few decent places around so probably wouldn’t wait again but it was nice

Was looking forward to getting a feed of fish n chips here since London, as been a few years between visits, and man it didn’t disappoint. Snapper for $7 nzd a piece is so fresh and tasty, just lightly battered and perfectly cooked. Love this place and can’t wait till the next time I get to come back!

Probably the worst meal ever had in New Zealand since 5 years...greasy, oily, sausage to forget about...fish could probably be fine but tasteless because of the oil...
