The old question of where to find the best fish, chips and seafood may just be solved.
Line Bait occupies a small space in the midst of North Adelaide`s O`Connell St.
There is a capacity to create a point of difference, here in the form of adding to the traditional fish and chip menu a fair swag of interest-sparkling Mediterranean stylings. Alongside the garlic prawns come fetta prawns, here spot-on with bright fresh tomato flavours, the sharpness of the broken-down fetta adding spark to the sweet-fleshed prawns. In addition the cream and white soup based Chowder is bursting with a huge habdful of cockles as well as strips of calamari, prawns and fish.
From the old-school fish and chip selection, whiting in crumbs is fresh and neatly balanced between butterflied fillet and crunchy, lightbrowned coating. The chips are big, flat, cracking and more-ish, vying for best-chip-in-town status.
This is a terrific little fish cafe.
