If you're craving some fish and chips, look no further than Al's shop. Featuring a variety of fish including the usual cod (kabeljauw), salmon (recommended!), halibut or whatever is available that day. The fish, cut in huge pieces, is usually done to perfection. The coating is crispy if a little greasy, which only adds to the authenticity. The chips are likewise good.
A fish and chips plate is certainly a filling meal. A selection of pies, including the ubiquitous steak and kidney are available too.
The interior is your typical fast food joint, with stools and tables, often littered with English and Dutch newspapers for your reading pleasure. No swank, just good fish. Enjoy!

A great place for Brits (and all other nationalities!) to get a taste of home. Prices were reasonable and the food was excellent. If you're a little wary of eating "foreign" food, you can't go far wrong here. You can either do the traditional takeaway thing, or just sit and eat in - either way, it's good stuff and a very welcome break from the more unpronounceable and unpalatable offerings festering away in display cabinets all day long.

Had yet another meal at your plaice this evening, excellent nosh as usual! 'Came out of your establishment feeling like a big fat bloated barstard due to the portions you serve!'Was in London a couple of weeks ago and had fish & chips - but not as nice as at your plaice!
Enjoy yourself in Aruba,

The portions are more than generous the chips authentic like any respectable fish & chip shop in the Brithish Isles and the the fish really hits the spot ... advisable whether you're a regular or a first timer ... nice one!
