Welcome to Fishtales

"not your average fish ’n chippy"

Since 1996 Fishtales has been striving to satisfy customers by serving high-quality, freshly-prepared seafood. Fishtales has filled the gap between traditional fish and chip shops and premium seafood take-aways. Fishtales is no longer Port Elizabeth’s best-kept secret! Over and over again, countless customers’ feedback includes quotes like, “Better than…, better than…..”!

Salads and side orders are prepared daily. Our meals are not pre-cooked as we cook-to-order which ensures a freshly-prepared meal to your liking. Following in the old, traditional way, our fried ‘fish and chips’ is still wrapped in the local newspaper (printed on outside). Meals can be fried in our sought-after batter or grilled to perfection. We are “not your average fish ‘n chippy”. On offer is a wide variety of seafoods (from Paellas to Prawn Burgers), salads and sauces, to satisfy your personal preference. There are many tantalizing meals and combinations to choose from. We also pride ourselves in the fact that we still offer freshly-cut (above the rest) chips which are far tastier than frozen chips.

We, at Fishtales, would like to make your seafood experience memorable.

The Captain invites you to the table…. If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit Fishtales, stop by, you won’t be disappointed!
