Arrived very last min and not only did they accommodate the late order but nothing was too much of an issue. Food was hot, tasty and just as we'd ordered. Thanks and I cant recommend the takeaway too much

Decided on a whim to have a take-away. We both had cod and chips, the fish was flaky and delicious and the batter light and crispy. I think the chips were hand made , irregular in size and perfectly cooked. Good value for money. Will...definitely use again.More

We decided to try Jaaps Catch, had to order and wait not a problem, ordered 2 fish and chips and a curry sauce. Must admit for the price I expected a better sized fish and the curry sauce didn't taste like curry sauce and was...watery. However to be fair even though the fish was more a child's size, it was very tasty and the chips tasted good. Felt the price was a bit steep for the size of fish, as locally you can get fish for the same price and quality a lot bigger.More

Wanting an easy dinner option we visited and ordered fish and chips. Younhave to wait outiside while they prepare the food and then respond when they call your name. The fish is good, but make aure the chips are freshly cooked. Prices are reasonable.

As recommended on trip advisor we made the detour to Japps Catch, upon arriving there was one customer in the shop and 3 waiting outside who had already ordered. If you want to spend your whole evening waiting to be called into the shop to...take your order go there, one person in the que infront of me and from start to finish 30 mins to order a normal chippy tea. Bad points - no small sausage no tomato sauce (for the kids) asked to buy a bottle and was told that they were u able to go to the shop over the road as was closed. Lidl was open. The service seems absolutely chaotic one lady at the front and another chap. Visited at 6:15 they were open from 5 and closed at 7pm Do they go and catch the fish while your waiting?? Given no forks to eat with either no napkins but a fancy paper bag and boxes with food in. Didn’t realise until we were back in the car. Kids had to wait until it had cooled to start eating. Half term with glorious weather and tea time the whole ordeal of waiting so long (for everything) spoilt our meal. Fish was nice but chips were not crispy and very dry not to mention only salt and vinegar on one not all. Thoroughly disappointed with it all as this is rated number 2 in Colwyn Bay.More

Fabulous fish n chips. We were on a day trip for my birthday and wanted fish n chips while we sat in the car overlooking the sea. Had driven around trying to find somewhere and came across Jaap’s. Lovely people, very helpful, service with a...smile. Even offered tartar sauce and lemon which is a first. Fabulous! :-)More

Well ...there’s not much you can say about this place but bad attitude...probably the best fish and chips locally with good young staff serving ...there’s nothing you can fault the food for ..traditional fish and chips with all the extras We have been here many...of times ..but on this occasion when we returned home to sit down to our order it was wrong ...we ordered fish chips and chicken pie ...but we got fish chips and nuggets a little disappointing but this happens in the food service sometimes so not to moan about that ..it was the response of the woman on the other end of the phone when we called to say what had happened..the response yes I remember the order and you ordered nuggets (as we always have a pie and would never order nuggets) we knew she got the order wrong and her response in saying we are really busy I’ll have to put you on hold but I only charged you for nuggets wasn’t the response and for no apology and to be told it was our fault not good customer service..not that we wanted anything but just to let them know ....too not look after your local business especially in these trying time’s seems disappointing and poorMore
