A Stop to See

This was an exciting visit. You need to arrive early in order to see the boats come in and the auction taking place. You can find all sorts of fish and crustaens, It's a bit messy tho.

I had heard great things about the seafood here. While the food was well cooked (seafood and steak alike), the wait staff was slow and rather inattentive. He only had 2 tables and we had trouble getting his attention. The portions were fair for the pricing. The atmosphere is cute but does leave you wanting a little more. It's just... More

A nice local fish restaurant as it should be. The fish and seafood were fresh. The frenchfries crispy. The desserts good, though it's the chef's interpretation to classics. The prices seem fare for what you get. The only downside is that the place has no AC (seating is outside, on the porch).

After a climb up a tough set of stairs you will find an indoor/outdoor restaurant. I had the fish soup and the seafood salad, The vegetables were fresh. The service was, as to be expected slow.

Fish Monger, they serve very delicious food, I tried fish and it was very yummy. The environment is quite good and located just besides Sea Cliff Hotel.

The fish monger is located in the Sea Cliff Village Shopping center across from the hotel. I had the seafood platter which had lobster, queen prawns and calamari. It was very good and reasonably priced. This is not a fast food restaurant so be prepared to wait about 30 minutes after ordering to be served. The dining area is outside... More

It's a super casual atmosphere. The seafood was not as expected. Someone that has been coming here for some time said it was really good. Maybe it was an off night.

Fishmonger is next to the more upmarket and expensive Seacliff restaurant in the small shopping mall next to it. It's an outdoor rooftop setting with bistro-like atmosphere. I had the Classic British fish and chips and the only thing missing was the mushy peas!

I would have rated this higher but there were just too many flies buzzing all around me to enjoy the food. I had the shrimp and kingclip type fish and the taste was good. But, when you are battling flies, it was just uncomfortable. You sit outside and it was quite hot. I think if they would turn on some... More
