Middle of school holidays and although we didn't have a reservation, waitress was very nice and managed to squeeze us in. Wait staff were courteous, initial drink orders and meals taken quickly. Meals arrived in a timely manner, although once meals had arrived, no further service for drinks etc. Large meals and very nice.

Customer service was great but the quality of the meal was a bit poor. I ordered fish for my son, batter was thick and not much fish. Salad was so small and not fresh. It is a family run business but lacks on the quality of fish and salad.

Hard to beleive I hadn't heard of this one being a local. But am glad I tried it out. Fish was very fresh and actually had more of a choice then the usual Barramundi that is offered EVERYWHERE as the fish available in this town, so sad when we have so much better catch on offer on our own doorstep....

Don't order the lunch specials the meals might sound good for 15.90 but they are poorly prepared and the scallops with cous cous that I ordered wasn't even appetiser size. There were 4 of the tiniest scallops I've ever seen with a little pile of cous cous in the middle and some proscuto pieces so small that I could barely... More

Enjoyed a nice seafood meal at Splash with a group of friends. It was slightly less expensive than a couple of other seafood restauants nearby and we had to sit inside as no room outside at the timke we walked in. Everywhere was busy due to school holidays. Staff were very helpful and everyone enjoyed their seafood selection, including help... More

Service was excellent- waiters were prompt and very polite. Our table saw a seafood laksa which was delicious (although could have used a kick of spice), vegetarian pasta dish and the macadamia crusted fish which I noticed no complaints. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for and it was a nice evening.

We walked past Barnaby Bills which was packed to capacity and found Splash just next door with only a few customers. The food was amazing, especially the spicy salt and pepper squid. We also got a barramundi meal from the specials board which was to die for! Service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely go back again!

Great wild caught seafood. The owner is a fisherman and this is always a good sign. Very good service also.
