Great light lunch.

Fish and calamari were excellent. Extra big serve of chips in each serve. Located in lane with many other good eateries.

I went here because it was highly rated. Did no let us down. Healthy options and great specials menu. Takeaway or eat in. Advise you to get takeaway and sit in the park overlooking main beach. Great way to end a day

Grilled prawns with salad and corn. Prawns were really sweet and juicy whilst the salad was crisp and fresh with a mixture of asian and traditional ingredients. Recommended.
