Fodor's Expert Review Murphy's on the Corner

$ Akaroa and the Banks Peninsula Café

Acclaimed around the country as having some of the best fish-and-chips available, this takeout-style eatery often has queues out the door. The deep-fried fish is served with a big side of perfectly cooked chips and a big chunk of lemon, or try the ciabatta fish sandwich from the wharfside caravan. But watch the seagulls, who also seem to like the fish-and-chips—a lot.
