The Best Fish and Chips in Adelaide

Being a beachside hotel, a question we often get asked is “where can I get the best fish and chips?”. Now the answer to this is relatively subjective - you might like super crispy chips, or grilled fish, or extra salty tartare – but nothing quite beats local knowledge when it comes to seafood secrets. With 30km of coast, there are so many places to tick off the list when in search of the perfect fish and chips, but below are just a few that we find to be superb...


Soto’s – Semaphore Beach

Is this the BEST fish and chips is Adelaide? Many people would go so far to say yes and we would count ourselves as one of them. Rave reviews, and close to the water, Soto’s is known for their out of this world chips and perfectly cooked fish. Fresh, fast, and famed, you can’t go wrong with a feed here.

Cardonne’s – Glenelg

This Jetty Road establishment is best for know their beautiful seafood platters, quality food and a high-level of service. Their seafood dishes are highly praised, but also being an Italian restaurant, offer risotto, pasta’s and other favourites. Less of a fish and chip shop, and more of a fine dining restaurant, Cardonne’s truly is one of the best in Adelaide.  

Moseley Bar and Grill – Glenelg Beach

An institution here in Glenelg, the Mosely Bar and Grill recently got a bit of a facelift and is the perfect place for a late lunch with the mates. Order the fish and chips in the upstairs bar and snag yourself a seat on the deck, overlooking Mosely Square. The people watching here is almost as satisfying as their perfectly cooked chips.
