The Fish and Chips here is very good indeed - Ches's is a bit of an institution but the reputation is well deserved. They have been serving fish and chips for over 60-years and the original family still run the business. Everything is freshly cooked,...More

A place for locals and tourists to enjoy their crispy fish and chips. If you're new to the place ask for a certificate. The fish and fries taste good. The chips has a big portion. If you can ask for half or less better.

Newfoundland's famous Fish & Chips. Celebrating 60 years in business, and is still run by the 2nd & 3rd generations of Barbours. All fresh products (except for the off fishing season) Ches's prides itself on having the best quality food that can be found. (example they hand select their "chip" potato from 6-7 samples each week for color, texture and taste)We hope to see you soon.
