+ Easy to find. Not a wide variety of food offered, but their fish and chips were quite good. Pleasant service as well. Nice view over the harbor. - Not the place for a budget meal.

This cafe provided us with the best fish and chips we can remember eating. The fish was delicious with a light batter and there is a great view over the harbour. Certainly a cafe to visit.
