We waited twenty minutes before finding someone to take our order, and we ordered two fish and chips. After thirty minutes the table next to us who had been there before us started to complain they they had been waiting for their food, and another half an hour later they got it, but we still hadn't got ours. 15 minutes...

Probably my favourite seasfood restaurant in Freo and there's quite a few to choose from there. Have always enjoyed coming here with larger groups, family friends if you want quality seafood thats a step up from the other 'fish and chip' places. Food is always good, reasonably priced and the service is great. Nice location too.

There are several good restaurants in the boat harbour and I particularly like this one. There are great harbour views from almost every table and the internal ambience is quirky and interesting. From the "sawn-off" VW Camper van to the various pieces of memorabilia displayed around the walls there is always something to check out. But we all go to... More

The food was very average the presentation poor and the service average. The location and view was great. The restaurant lacked class and atmosphere. I would not go back.

Arrived and was glad to get a table but that was the only highlight. Terrible service, restaurant was only half full and yet the wait for our order to arrive was close to an hour, only when I spoke to someone did the food come out. Good thing I did as I might still be waiting! Barramundi was over cooked,... More

Well this place has gone downhill since my last visit a few years ago. The service was so slow, my party of ten considered walking out. I ordered the fish and chips. When the food arrived, the fish was good, the coleslaw excellent, but the chips - oh dear. they need some one to teach them how to cook chips.... More

Its the done thing, fish and chips in Freo as they say. A bit overpriced and a bit over cooked. I have had better in many places, so not much credit here. The staff were good but the tables needed a clean and the food as stated was only average.
