Fresh Sustainable Fish & Chips Concept. Fresh fish only at our beloved restaurant where we are trying to change the style of traditional Fish & Chips by using our very own 'street food' interpretation of the classic British dish. We are influenced by cuisines & cultures from all over the world and love the challenge of creating new styles regularly. We have a small restaurant so we cannot take reservations. With 30+ recipes, 20+ sauces & over 25 types of sustainable fish that change weekly we hope you find your style! EAT MORE FISH. Bia Mara
