We were looking for a light snack. The boss received us very nicely. We took a big bowl of fresh fruits with smoothie under, it was delicious! And the price is ok for the size. We were very happy walking a little far from the lagoon to find a better restaurant !!!

Got barramundi filet for takeaway. In the end, it was delicious, but to get to it I had to wade through a takeaway bag of fish juice that leaked out the side of the styrofoam clam shell as I walked back to the hotel. Advice for staff and customers: maybe tie the bag closed to ensure that it stays flat?

I wanted to like this place because the staff were lovely. Unfortunately the fish fillet (hoki), prawns and chips that we ordered were tasteless. So disappointing.

For a fish and chip place, Frydays does service like a top restaurant. Very friendly and can't do enough for you. Our fish and chips, seafood basket and battered prawns were great. They also offer a huge variety of burgers, smoothies etc. Highly recommended.

Grandkids love fish and chips and were not disappointed with Frydays! Weather was nice for eating outside. Lovely lunch, and I thought the prices were reasonable.
