OMG This is definitely the best 'fish and chips' we ever had. Whilst we didn't get any actual fish, we had oversized prawns, juicy scallops and tender calamari. I can honestly say it's the best seafood I've ever had. Fair value I believe and portion size was enough for me and kids but hubby was still hungry. It's easy to... More

We came by this restaurant during our research on Kingscote food places and marked it down as one of the must try place. It certainly lived up to its reputation for freshness !! We had arrived a little after 630 pm after a fruitful day out exploring the south of KI. We were worried that the restaurant may have been... More

A nice friendly local restaurant, with both sit down and take out service. The food was very good, but not overwhelming or special. We enjoyed watching locals coming in and out picking up their orders. The overall experience was refreshing, the food was good, and the price was very good....kind of not what you might expect in light of the... More

We chanced upon this little seafood restaurant from Tripadvisor and found it a really amazing place. The fish and chips were good and our children were asking for repeated visits. It is excellent value for money. Tina and her staff were great - excellent customer service all the way. We had a good conversation and what impresses me was her... More

Fish is fresh and local and good range of smoked fish,oysters, mussels etc. The flake we had was excellently cooked - one battered and one crumbed. You can dine in or takeaway.

Although I'm not a big fan of fish and chips, I do find their fish nice and meaty. This is unlike others where the fish is too thinly sliced and the batter overwhelms the fish. Other than cooked food, there is a good selection of raw fishes, scallop, oyster and squid. We also bought some oyster which is reasonably priced... More

Amazing seafood here!! We bought a few snapper fillets - that fresh it just came in and was being filleted by the girls. We asked where to buy some breadcrumbs and they said it was easier if she did there. Wasn't expecting that! Great service and the seafood - to die for. The day later we grabbed a seafood pack...

We only had 2 nights in town & on recommendation, we bought fish from these guys. We enjoyed it so much, we decided they should cook our second nights meal as well. Lovely & fresh, well cooked, good variety.
