Adey's Place (formerly Blairs on the Beach) is a long-standing Piha institution, serving up what are known as some of the finest fresh fish and chips in the country.

Established in 1975, the beachfront eatery is owned by local chef Adrian Doggett and is the perfect place to indulge while watching the activity at Auckland's most famous and popular black sand beach.

Known for their range of delicious Kiwi classics, including burgers and toasted sandwiches, it's their fresh fish and famously delicious hand-cut hot chips that they are best known for.

Opening hours vary according to the season.

Probably the best fish and chips I've ever had. Pricey, but worth it!

Biggest and best pot of chips in Auckland.

THE best hot chips in West Auckland, people! Been making them the same for years! Pretty sure you're guaranteed a good coffee a great yarn and some funky tunes! A must-visit if you’re in Piha.

I tell all my visitors to Piha that these are the best chips in New Zealand. People don't believe me. They scoff. "Yeah, right," they say. Then they eat the chips. And they're silent. Too busy eating them. And because I'm right. Nobody, NOBODY, has been able to disagree with me.
