Satisfactory fish and chip meal but certainly nothing special, especially considering the inflated prices. Conveniently situated on the seafront and looked bright and busy which encouraged us to go in. Cafe style dining area, order food at counter and staff deliver to table. At best, food, service and ambience is mediocre.

We were about to set off walking the golden mile. Pablo's is just a few minutes from the Pleasure Beach so we stopped for our fish and chip tea. Pablo's special is F&C with mushy peas, bread&butter and tea/coffee. Great price at about £6.50 - much cheaper than others we saw. Very clean, helpful staff, quick service and a tasty... More

We came here because another local cafe was closed at lunchtime unless you wanted takeaway and we'd had a busy, long morning and wanted to sit down, have a break and a cup of tea with some food. For just over £6 we got a large portion of fresh fish in perfect batter, a large portion of chips and a... More

Nice fish and chips - portions aren't big but are tasty. Always very busy but the staff did there very best to get us on as soon as possible. Enjoyable and I would recommend.

As the Romans said when in Blackpool you got to have fish and chips and this place delivers 6 portions all delicious as clean plates. It was busy but staff were great tables cleaned away quickly and toilets spotless too. Highly recommend.

We always visit Pablo's while in Blackpool. This time we sat in the new dining room bit and although had to queue for a while to order we was not disappointed. It was about £18 for 1 adult and 3 children for main course and drinks which you can't complain about. The food was delicious as usual and the toilets... More

I wanted a hotdog on the pier, I was outnumbered, so we compromised on this place. It looked busy but with a couple of free tables, and clean. I had sausages and chips and it was lovely. The three small sausages instead of a jumbo one was neither good or bad. All three were cooked well and tasted good. The... More

We went to see the illuminations and stopped for fish and chips at Pablo's. It was just the right portion size, the fish tasted fresh and it was delicious. The only downfall was the cost of a can of cola £2!

Visited this place after spending a few hours in the Sandcastle Water Park, and the fish and chips were lovely. The batter was light, fluffy and crispy and chips cooked to perfection. The food wasn't soggy or greasy, I had the fish bites, chips and mushy peas, the portion was generous but not over facing - Just enough for a... More

Have been coming to Pablos for years now! Best in Blackpool by far! Some of the staff could be more polite but some are lovely! The food is great and so is the price especially the Pablos special!
