We had a fishermans basket & all the fish was imported frozen fish. The scallops had large white roes (Thailand?), the fish was oily, prawns were the flat "cocktail" style you buy in boxes for parties. The staff bickered between themselves while we waited. But...More

What a great find. Fresh seafood, fresh salads and pizzas. Room to sit inside, outside or take away. It is well worth the wait, we had to wait 40 minutes, but the freshness was extraordinary.

We ordered 2 grilled flathead fillets, chips and salad. Each flathead fillet was actually the size of a sardine (I am not kidding) and also badly cooked. The chips were soggy and what we received for 2 of us was less than one usual helping!...More

Admittedly it was a busy night, but the food was terrible. No plates, just a cardboard box and plastic cutlery, but luckily they did provide tables and chairs. Local fish? I think not. I had grilled flathead, my husband blue-eye cod. mine was totally overcooked...More

Our meal was great and reasonably priced and they were open early for tea which was great with 3 young children. The only downside was there was no high chair which makes it quite difficult with a 18 month old. Other than that it was...More
