Wallys on the Wharf

Welcome to Wally's, we are situated right on the wharf at Whakatane. Known as “ NZ’s Finest fish and chips”, there is also a selection of delicious fresh fish meals, Gourmet, Mega and Standard burgers, Kids meals and fresh garden salad. Dine outside on the waterfront, inside the café, or order takeaways. 

Wally’s also serve mussels (mussels are our signature dish), scallops, paua fritters, oysters in season, and whitebait fritters in season. We only serve the freshest of seafood and fish n chips. Check our blackboard for daily specials. Come taste our unique crumbed fish which seals the fish and steams it from the inside. We also have a great selection of fresh seafood available “to go” from our seafood bar. Shrimp salads are popular and so are the fresh Coromandel mussels. We even have Fried Bread available. One batch made every day - first in first served!
Fresh “wet” fish is also available when the fishermen’s catch is good – there may be hoki, snapper, flounder, john dory or terakihi. We are open every day 11am till 7pm in winter and open from 11am till 8pm in summer.
