Staff looked as though they had just been employed off the street......some smart uniforms might be a good idea, but good food and very reasonably priced. Would go back !!

The friendly waitress recommended the chicken and prawn curry, and it was delicious! Sitting on the deck seeing the ocean in the distance and a palm-nut vulture flying past was fabulous.

Thank you to Mike and the staff at Fat Cat for always offering our guests and friends fabulous food and service. We are always delighted to hear all the great reviews. Your chicken and prawn curry is highly recommended.

We have eaten at Fat Cat many times and have never been dissapointed. Good food, friendly staff and a wide variety of meals to choose from. During holiday season they are extremely busy so you will not get a table unless you book in advance.

Nice dinner but it was a problem to get fresh fish, they don't have this kind of thing. The fish is frozen but they admit it.

The restaurant is open from 8 to 8. So what ever time you are feel like a nice meal you will be served. The nice little wooden deck gives a great view onto the ocean, which digs your appetite little more. The menu is full of different things to try and as a everyday thing that it has been for... More

I can safely say I saw behaviour from the owner which was bordering on abusive. He literally shouted, swore and proceeded to chuck plates around in the kitchen all because an elderly lady simply addressed the fact that her meal had a problem. His abusiveness to this poor lady left her embarrassed and other diners shocked. By the time our... More

This restaurant serves good food but the front of house is a bit of a disaster with intermittent attention from the owner / manager and the 'manager'. (I say manager in inverted commas because he is not able to fulfill the role of placating customers who have waited too long for their food, or to control the seating of customers.)... More

Living in Zini, you end up going to Fat Cat at least once a week - often for breakfast after a night on call, or for dinner with friends. The food is simple and reliably good, service is really friendly (although occasionally a bit slow) - it's a really popular place to go, and on a sunny day their verandah... More
