A little hidden away, but a reasonable price and good value. The chips were perfect, one piece of fish (out of 5) a little overcooked, so not sure what happened there.

We went there because English friends had told us it was the closest from what we get in England: the best they ha tried in Australia. We liked it, the snapper fish was very good. A little bit too oily though and a little bit too small. The service was not great: the waiters are not very nice but the... More

Decent portion size and the food was hot but the service was average and it took more than 40 minutes for 3 serves of chips, 6 calamari rings and 3 potato cakes. All the while the staff advised it would be ready soon. Chips and potato cakes were OK but the (battered) calamari was below average. Won't be going back.

Would be best fish and chips around, if they were more consistent. One day fish is small, next day they are almost double the size. Same with chips, the portion size is never the same. Sometime it's greasy, chips soggy, other times it's perfect. Fish is typically perfectly cooked.

Ate here alot as a local in the area. Abandoned it though as soon as Pulp Kitchen opened in Durack. Very large menu but didn't like any of the fish. It always tasted old. The burgers are nice though.
