    "As we have a holiday apartment in Margate we always stop at Spillane Wharf to visit Fish on the River. We also recommend our guests visit them for the best fish and chips this side of Cape Town. The food is always fresh and the service is really awesome. We always order the same thing. Neptune's Platter which consist of three prawns and handful of Calamari together with three large pieces of hake all battered. Keith has the hake and chips and we can never bring ourselves to order anything different. We have been going for over five years now and on our website Margate Tourism it's on the recommended list. Well done for keeping up the standard of excellence."
