The portions are very nice. This is your fish & chip stop :) 1 piece is plenty. Enjoy overlooking the water in a very relaxing atmosphere.

Closest place to eat near the marina. We went on a Friday nite, loud at first but died down early, stopped serving at 10 pm. Typical bar food and prices ok.

Thank OWJohn
