This is a touristy place in a tourist area, but the food is really good. It is bustling busy and the servers can be a little frenetic but the food comes out hot and usually quickly.

Sometimes with an extensive menu you wonder if standards will be difficult to maintain but all the dishes we tried were superb and the seafood fresh and tasty. Service was excellent - fast, slick and polite.

The Raw Prawn really impressed us when we ate here. The service was great as was the atmosphere, but the best part had to be the delicious fresh seafood! Make sure you order something local, you'll definitely get something really amazing.

Arrived pretty late on a Sunday night, looked up trip advisor and picked Raw Prawn. Really friendly service, good wine list, and very good seafood. Prawns, bugs, calamari were all very good, as was the seafood fusion.
