We visit this restaurant regularly and the food is consistently good. The restaurant has views across Holes Bay and almost every table gives you a view of the water. The seating is good, not overcrowded and decent sized tables. We usually eat at lunchtime and order the lunchtime space ian. Prices have gone up recently but it's still good value... More

This restaurant appears at first glance to be a conventional Fish n' Chips takeaway, but a closer look will reveal its secret. The dining area to the rear that has panoramic views of Holes Bay looking across to the marina. Not only do they serve award winning fish and chips, but also a huge variety of delicious and beautifully presented... More

Easily one of the best fish and chip joints around. However it was such a shame that the experience was ruined by such poor service. We sat there for a good 15 mins before being acknowledged, we then waited 20 minutes for a drink and a 30 mins for food. We then had to ask for the bill 3 times... More

We tried the restaurant after stumbling across the fish & chip shop when parking nearby and smelling the chips! Next time we reserved a table for the excellent views. The fare is traditional fish & chips with all the trimmings and a good selection of beers & wine. It is very well managed so service is excellent and there are... More

Went on a Sunday night for a takeaway. All food cooked fresh which was good and very generous portions. Didnt have to wait too long considering. Nice chips and flaky fresh fish. Also ordered curry sauce which was excellent and mushy peas which for a tiny portion was very expensive. A little on the pricey side but overall, very good... More

It started off bad when they served a warn bottle of beer - and went downhill rapidly after that. The chips were soggy - as if they;d been sitting in the whatsit for a long time. Half chicken was virtually inedible and I suspect the ribeye steak may well have been cooked in the deep fat fryer. The view is... More

The food is great but the atmosphere very noisy. (Probably because it is so popular) Staff are very efficient. The menu is varied and portions are generous

I booked a table, and we arrived 2 minutes before the booked time. I saw the manageress and said i had a booking and... More
