We have frequently stopped by for a takeaway fish, chips and other seafood choices. We can only say, every time the fish is moist, very fresh and tasty. We have tried several places' but the fish is cooked to perfection. The service is always friendly and obliging. We phone through our order before we get to Wivenhoe and it is... More

A bit breezy on a cold night as doors open directly into the seating area. Good choice of fish dishes but also souvlaki. Dessert is limited to a variety of icecream. Expect to pay $25+ for most meals.

Really loved the food, it was good quality and a reasonable price, we finished it all off with some beautiful ice cream! Feeling very full and satisfied!

We order the Seafood plate for two, portion size is reasonable. Because I do not want any deep fried batter seafood, I requested the chef/owner to grill or pan friend all the seafood. He is so accomodating and he cook it for us. It's wonderful. The homemade Thai fish cake…YUM. Everything is just awesome and delicious.

Ordered the fish platter for two and I must say you could not fault it in anyway. Beautiful fresh fish, coconut prawns, calamari, scallops and prawn skewers with a delightfully fresh salad. From the presentation and freshness of each plate I saw taken to the tables it is obvious the owners know what they are doing. Its an absolute credit... More

Another just out of town cafe that is thriving! Seafood and a small variety of other food on offer. All quality and delicious. Maybe a tad dearer than other seafood places but the quality can't be faulted. Again loved by locals.

A local fresh fish takeaway place that also does a great job for those that stay to eat. The ingredients of our fish platter for two were fresh and well prepared. The scallops were perfectly done and clearly fresh off the boat. This is not a tablecloth on the table kind of place and the menu choices are narrow, fried... More

This place is a gem.....very understate with a focus on fresh.. fresh.. fresh...a great menu ranging from F&C to laksa..The burger & steak sandwich looked pretty good also..Save room if possible for the desserts. It isn't swanky but the service comes with a huge smile & great music. A nice dining experience.
