This shop sells the best Fish and Chips! Serving was very reasonable with the pricing that came along with it. The bacon burger was another must try list. The bacon is so juicy that when you bite it, the juice is being squeezed out and flows into your mouth and hand. Would dine here again!

I dont mind paying good money for good food, but if you are going to charge $16 for fish and chips, you better be good! Not only was it not good I had to throw it out and just ate the chips which were ok thankfully, the snapper was a greyish color and tasted rubbery, was it even cooked right?... More

We picked this restaurant for dinner because we had previously been impressed by the crunchy batter on our fish and beer battered chips. We were once again impressed by our meal. Also the staff were very friendly and provided prompt service. Please note that a flock of seagulls were eagerly eyeing off our chips, but the waitress cleared it away... More

Unashamedly I went to Bens five times whilst at Surfers and you can't knock the consistency when it comes to serving first class fish and chips. The battered Barramundi was out of this world and for an avid fish lover it is certainly up there as one of the best fish and chip meals I have eaten. Highly recommended and... More

Just bumped into the shop, staff was extremely friendly. We ordered the signature classic Cod and a Fish Cake. Cod with the right batter, fried just right with thick cod meat. Chips are crispy enough. Great deal.

We had fish and chips the day after Boxing Day. The service was fast and the food tasted magnificent. The chocolate milkshake was a bit pricey at $7 but it was really good. We felt we paid a premium price but it was a premium location looking across the road at the beach. Yum! We recommend you visit.
