We decided to eat here based on the good reviews on TripAdvisor. It was ok, but we were all somewhat underwhelmed with our meals, and had expected more based on the reviews. The blue cod was nice, but the paua patty was pretty awful.

Stopped here on the way back from Milford Sound. Great chips and spring rolls! Restaurant was really clean and a really varied menu. Can highly recommend if you are passing or live in the area.

We stopped here for a quick lunch. The fish and chips were great. The owners were most friendly. We had the cod. The calamari was very tender.

We had Burger and Chips for our dinner meal, the chips were nicely cooked but they needed to be salted, the burger was average as the Meat Pattie tasted to be a bit over cooked and it wasn't very presentable, the sauce was like it was chucked into the burger.
