One of the best food spots in Kingscote open till 8pm. Ordered grilled snapper, prawns, corn jack and veg spring rolls. All items cooked to perfection and served with a smile. Pros: Good quality, fresh seafood, good service Cons: No lemon wedge given with snapper

This unassuming looking fish and chip shop serves up the freshest fish with a side helping of not very good chips. They proudly display several accolades and awards won over the last few years so why not go a little further and give the guests metal cutlery to eat with. There is also a fresh fish counter offering some very... More

Great fish and chips. Given the shop is right next to the petrol station get take away and head down to the waterfront. A really nice way to spend an afternoon.

...but didn't quite live up to the amazing reviews I'd read out there. Pretty pricey and weird to see so much of the 'fresh fish' sourced from overseas. No complaints about what we had though.

Thankyou for your recent review, most of our seafood is locally caught and labelled local produce, the only fish we have that is imported is Atlantic Salmon from Tasmania, Australian caught Tuna which is processed in Indonesia, due to processing costs and legally we must label it from the country it is processed in,and the Tuna comes in Frozen ....
