Floury chips

Last time we had lunch here we noticed the chips weren't up to Joe's usual standard - they were "floury" and didn't taste as good as usual. We commented on this and were told that they had changed their supplier, and also volunteered that we were not the first to complain. So today when we stopped... read more

We dined here years ago with friends from overseas, and I had the best steak. I can now say it is still the best, in Perth! A staff member asked "How was your lunch?" I said it was amazing, he pointed out they had been serving the same cut Ribeye, from the same wholesaler for over 10 years! Come and... More

our mistake eating out doors not inside. Meal horrid. Very greasy and only just warm. Pretty tasteless as well. Had fish, chips, prawns - euck! Really? Could have been breadcrumbed cardboard! Fish sticks - well they were ok. Very disappointed with this as had been about 5 years ago and loved it.

The spicy mussels are something worth trying!! The portion is huge. Fish and chips is moderate but it was good for a hungry stomach.

Average service, chips were ok and the fish was alright. Greasy and the outside area was not particularly tidy. The scollops were nice but not amazing. Wouldn't make a second visit

A truly friendly place and great sea food, nothing special, just enjoy the beautiful hospitality of what Perth down under has to offer. Sitting by the window you can enjoy the view of the harbor. And yes the skeleton jaw of a great white is what will greet you upon entering.

Great ambience, beach themes and simple decor. Great outlook, especially if you get a seat overlooking the fishing harbour. It's a fun place to people watch as they pass by on the boardwalk just below ....along with watching boats & seagulls. We found the service prompt & helpful. Food was very good. Between us we ordered battered fish & chips,... More
