All you had to do was to look at the line to know it must be good. Fish and chips were good and the fish soup was very good. Finding a place to sit was a challenge though but to be expected in that area.

Barb's looked like it had a nice selection of seafood, but we decided on having cheeseburgers instead. We enjoyed eating them on the wharf before our whale watching excursion. They were good hearty burgers!

Excellent fish and chips in a perfect location on Fishermans Wharf. Don't know how you can get any better. Also a good value, about $15 per person.

We walked to the collection of shops situated over the water and came across Barb's Fish and Chips. The fish and chips came with Coleslaw and we had a drink.
