Nulla hendrerit nunc ac justo maximus, a accumsan quam aliquet.

Vestibulum accumsan molestie consequat. Nulla eget urna ut sem porttitor condimentum. Donec sollicitudin augue nec volutpat varius.

Nullam eleifend, orci ut pretium venenatis, urna leo viverra neque, a luctus ipsum urna ac velit. Nam id lacinia nulla, ac blandit turpis. In vulputate neque sed augue semper vulputate. 

Unlike most ‘fish tales’ our story is one baited with love and anchored in truth. The story starts nearly four decades ago on a busy street in Johannesburg, two shops – one a fish and chips take away and the other a green grocer opened next door to each other.

The owners both had young children who grew up in these local stores, Nicolas and Daniela. The pair became friends and would play in the street together always with the backdrop of the delicious smell of fish and chips created by Nic’s single Mother.

But like the ocean currents change so did the paths of the two young friends, years past and although the memories of their childhood faded, Nic always recalled those times together and of course the aroma that always took him back to that street.

Some say that there are plenty of fish in the sea, but fate decided that this pair was meant to be and the two found each other again 26 years later… they fell hook, line and sinker for each other and romance quickly turned to marriage and then, the birth of there first, child Catalina.

Inspired by their story, the coming together of the two families and the arrival of Catalina, the two decided to honour their families legacy by creating a brand that “celebrates the times in our lives when all you need is a ‘little love’, family and a story wrapped how we can all remember, how we did in the old days.”

AND SO THE FISH & CHIP SHOP WAS BORN, A RESTAURANT BATTERED WITH LOVE, SPRINKLED WITH PASSION AND WRAPPED UP IN FATE.

So come join us at our table and enjoy an experience that means so much more than just eating to us, because we believe that good food can transform any meal into a moment to remember.

Inspired by their story, the coming together of the two families and the arrival of Catalina, the two decided to honour their families legacy. They joined forces with Nelson (Nic’s brother and all round nice guy) and Eddie (Daniela’s father and the owner of the green grocer from all those years ago) and together the four family members came up with the idea of creating a brand that celebrates those times in our lives when all you need is a little love and a lot of fish.
