Came across this wonderful surprise for lunch. Friendly owed and staff. A very good variety of fish to choose from. Fish was very good and the half serve of chips was more than both of us could eat. Location is wonderful looking out on the harbour.

We're locals and have been here a couple of times now as it is a great feed, with a great view in a relaxed environment - and it's BYO! Make sure you bring a picnic rug or fold up chairs as you sit on the lovely well maintained grass just near the beach. You order your fish and chips in... More

We bought takeaway fish; fresh salad and chips to munch on while the sun was setting. Many families took their purchases to the grassed area in front but we chose to eat at the restaurant's outdoor section. It was very pleasant and we would happily return.

Great waterfront view. The service was great, very fast and food was delicious. A little pricey and portion sizes aren't huge but it was nice and well worth it (:

Visited on a recommendation. Managed to get a table looking straight out onto the grassed area and sunset beyond. Service was friendly and attentive. We ordered battered barramundi and chips. The food arrived wrapped in paper. Fresh, tasty fish with slices of lemon. Very popular place to eat. Very laid back atmosphere.

Whether you choose to sit in or take out on the grass the food is served the same, wrapped up in paper. We chose takeout and on that night there was free face painting. The Barra was delicious and so were the battered scallops. It was great for the kids to be able to run around and then we went... More

We had SA Whiting - one serve crumbed and one battered. Also ordered side serve of salad and small serve of fish (heaps for 2). The fish was delicious - best I've had for ages. Chips were nice too for a change - unusual to have both nice. On the more pricey side, but great quality. Nice setting and view... More

Great fish and chips. Very popular place. Best to take a blanket or camp chairs and sit on the grassed area to enjoy the sunset where you can BYO, otherwise it is licensed and you can eat in the alfresco dining area. Great place for the family.

I was surprised by this little place, the view is amazing, the service was great and we had extras thrown in. There was a bit of a line up but our food came out pretty quick. We'll be returning for sure.
