This is not a restaurant, but fresh seafood shop (should have read trip advisor review before coming). Was somewhat disappointed when we arrived to find out the place was only small seafood shop and there were not much seafood on display when we went. We were hoping for some fish and chip, but settled for freshly cooked local prawn and sand crab take away (as there is no seating area). The prawn and sand crabs were so sweet and fresh it washed away the initial disappointment. Would definitely come back for more next time we visit the island.

Good Afternoon Henry,
My apologies about the confusion on our listing, unfortunately Trip Advisor limits listing abilities and we fall under the category of Restaurants. In regards to the lack of seafood, the weather gods have been quite unfair to us recently with all the cyclonic weather. With most of our local trawlers struggling to not only catch fish but find the courage to venture out in the dangerous weather conditions. I'm glad you enjoyed your Prawns and Sandies, look forward to seeing you again. The place is under new management and they have big plans, one being to have a seating area outside before Christmas, so hopefully you'll be able to relax there and enjoy our seafood next time,
Kind Regards
Steph

This is not a restaurant but it is an excellent seller of super-fresh, beautiful seafood. I have had the prawns, scallops and fish from here. All of it has been really high quality and just so fresh. It is pricey but the quality is good.

Pretty busy in school holidays and the beastly northerly probably kept them ashore for a few days but they still had a reasonable range that was fresh.
Can't fault what we purchased except it was more expensive than from fish merchant on the mainland.

Don't mistake this for a restaurant, this is a seafood outlet although I guess the prawns are already cooked so maybe class this as a takeaway.
