Really nice takeaway

We recently made a purchase from their takeaway section to eat at the beach. The burgers were tasty and the food was available in a reasonable time. Would definitely eat here again.

Went to the sandbar for breakfast with my family- hadn't been before, it was busy so I expected it to be good. Shame, it wasn't. Over cooked eggs, average meals and staff that didn't care....

Great Breakfast and personalised service at a reasonable price - Eggs Benedict with ham and hash browns and Latte came to $20 which is the price you'd pay at the coffee club or similar place. The difference is that you get great tasting food prepared by someone who cares about the quality of the food and attentive service thats puts... More

After reading reports on trip advisor, I thought this would be a good option. Staff were very friendly and courteous, Was excited by the menu but the execution was ordinary. Fish was dry, calamari was ok, garlic prawns were great but the worlds smallest Thai fish cakes were like the leftover crusty bits from the bottom of the fryer.

The young girl who served me made me feel like it was such a chore. I asked for a crossiant she said we don't do those I pointed to the large menu on the wall behind her and she said oh yeh!

We will walk past 4 other Fish & Chip outlets to dine here. Beer battered chips are recommended, calamari is tender and fish burgers over the top!
