A good place to eat. The food was tasty, and the location is great. It's in a great location the staff are friendly. It's not trying to be anything it's not. It's a nice cafe, with good prices and good food.

It's hard to review this cafe. Had a great lunch with perfectly cooked fish and excellent chips the first day so came back next day. Second time fish was overcooked - tasteless and dry. Chips ordinary. Steak sandwich was tough. Seemed to be same staff who were pleasant enough. Good location next to start of North Gorge walk but no... More

This restaurant is very casual, but very popular with all ages. Have eaten here quite a few times when staying at Point lookout. Prices are fairly average for what you get, mostly fish options or burgers, and it is licenced. Would consider it good value for money for casual dining.

We had fish and chips. The meal was large but nothing out of the ordinary, was just very average fish and chips which cost $36.00 for 2 adults. Staff were very nice and polite.

Really rather unpleasant food. Staff seemed nice enough and the decor with the nice looking chalk boards listing a range of fresh specials all sounded nice. The plastic menu we got seemed to offer a very different product. Firstly two calamari and chips and a snapper and chips in my mind should not cost over $70 even if they were... More

Enjoyed the calamari and salad here. It was excellent with really good sized portions. The salad was very good and had loads of olives. Would come back again.

Can not believe the attitude of the waitress who greeted us last Sunday. At approx 2pm on a beautiful Sunday afternoon a group of 10 set out for some fish and chips. We arrived at the restaurant to be told we could order but it must be take away as they wanted to close. We asked why we couldn't use... More

Fishes Cafe is a nice place to stop by for fish and chips or burgers. On Sundays might be a bit busy (like all the cafe places in the island). I liked the salad and the calamari rings, they were very good. It's usually pretty crowded. The prices are a bit high, but being in the island, you can't expect... More

Went there with my family on a Thursday night. First thing I was told: " we close in 30 minutes so you might not want to stay". Well, I stayed because it was the only place open and I have to small children... but regretted it. Average food quality, very overprices and a complaining waitress cleaning and putting away tables... More

Description
Swoon over breathtaking sea views and the salty smell of the ocean at Point Lookout's favourite restaurant. Indulge in the whale rock big brekkie and a side of the island's best coffee. For lunch or dinner dine alfresco with a beer on tap or grab takeaway fish 'n' chips and head to Frenchman's Beach.
