We went for the first time not long ago as we have heard how great the food is here. We were not disappointed. I shared a seafood platter, it was amazing, very large and so much to choose from on it, eg: crabs, fish, chips, prawns, mussels, scallops, fresh fruit etc. All other people at our table enjoyed their meal...

This used to be "the place" to go for those special family occasions, but it has clearly slid into oblivion since then. I took my grandparents there the other evening with those memories in mind and we were very disappointed. Two things offended me greatly. Firstly, the seafood chowder was full of seafood extender and shrivelled salty clams that had... More

Handy location for takeaway F&C. Food quality is OK but it is a little dated and does not always look clean. Probably due to needing a face lift.

Had couple of great nights here. The seafood was fresh, albeit there were twice which it wasnt as fresh as I've had before, and it seems to me that sometimes the texture and taste of the food is different on different visits. Both service and ambience was good. Recommended

My husband asked it the prawns for the meal he wanted to order were "local" (Australian), & was told they were not, (they were imported from Asia) so he decided to have the fish & chip meal & asked what the fish was in the 'fish and chip meal', to be told it was Basa. This is an imported freshwater... More

Seafood was great, perfectly cooked. The Atmosphere is a bit disjointed. Nice restaurant and good for the kids too.

Been a few times now. The service is excellent. We went prior to going to a show and the staff were very prompt with their service and considerate to our needing to 'eat and run'! The food each time has always been well presented, very tasty, generous helpings and promptly served. Good value for money!
