Fish cooked to order, lightly battered and chips normally good. Sit it available, plated fish, chip, extras, bread & spread and hot drink. Park seating over the road, if eating out of the paper!

I found Karls fish and chip shop after reading great reviews. We called in for tea after a heavy day sightseeing and it didn't disappoint. I must admit that when we first went into the restaurant area I was not sure what to expect because...it was very basic, But I can only say the service was great and the food was one of the best fish and chip meals we had ever had. How the cook gets the batter so light I really do not know. Fantastic food fantastic price. you have to try.More

Excellent meal from the set dishes menu. Cod, chips and mushy peas together with a pot of tea for 2 and bread and butter. Excellent friendly service - this is a "must visit" restaurant.

Always tracking down places with gluten free chips, great to find Karls Fish and Chips. Our dog loves a run on the beach, so now a trip to the chippy will be added in for us too. Echo all the other reviews about a friendly...service and lovely food. My partner had 'normal' fish and chips and loved it too. Many thanks for catering for us :-)More

Lovely fish and chips cooked fresh to order Good quality cod in crisp batter and a huge amount of chips for a small portion Definitely worth a visit in the Prestatyn area . We took ours down to eat at the beach but there is...also a nice park oppositeMore

Popped in on way hone from Rhos on Sea. Freshly cooked fish and chips. Great chips. Perfectly salted, and service was friendly. We sat in the park opposite as glorious evening. Seagulls are prolific, and annoying. The queue is worth it.

Absolutely lovely amazing staff. Had the nightmare of a long wait for a train late at night. Got there for 8.40pm and realistically they should have closed at 8pm but was all still working. Luckily they had enough to feed me and my little boy...up for the rest of our journey with nothing but smiles. Thank you so much. Food was spot on tooMore

Ordered fish chips and mushy peas and a small sausage for the dogs… food was hot, tasty and batter so so crisp! Watched the fish go in, out, drain and into my dinner… clearly some family banter going on behind the counter ensured a happy...and friendly welcome and atmosphere. I’ll be coming back!More

Fancied a treat and heard good reviews for Karl's chippy...what a disappointment! Ordered small fish and chips, mushy peas and sml curry sauce. Waited age's outside while someone else after me and got served and received their food. Eventually called and drove 3 minutes home....The fish was soggy and looked like what you'd get out of a supermarket freezer and chips and peas stone cold...and very tasteless, curry sauce gave it a bit of flavour but much. Ended up giving it to the dog who left it...waste of money as it wasn't cheap. Won't be going there again.More
