Delicious food

We ordered the fish of the day and it was absolutely delicious. One of the best I've had in a long time. In terms of location, it's close to the caravan park and also to the beach. The atmosphere is really nice. On a side note, the drinks are B.Y.O., which is what we found out once we got there.

This restaurant is amazing had wonderful fresh goldband snapper two nights running it was so good. Relatively small menu but caters for all tastes and kids. The seating is outdoors under fairy lights and creates a great atmoshere. BYO too keeps the costs down

Come for the fresh seafood then come back again and again and again! After first night in a week-long visit I rarely bothered eating elsewhere and when I did it didn't compare. The staff were friendly and helpful and the seafood consistently fresh and delicious. Best finished with mango ice cream (Though the other desserts looked pretty tempting too).

Make sure to reserve a table during peak season. We had to wait a while before our food was served, but man, was it worth it! Everything is prepared fresh and wit local ingredients. The restaurant is BYO and they serve you cooled spring water for free. We went back there for breakfast on our departure day. Also yum!

Fin's is very unassuming and it would be possible to be put off from a distance by the location/appearance. As the saying goes, do not judge a book by its cover. I went with my wife and two boys (7&5 years old). The service was quick and efficient, though they were very busy and had an half hour wait for... More

Our family booked into Finns for our last dinner before leaving Coral Bay. Luckily we did book earlier in the day, it was busy. Our table sat a little way outside the roof shelter, but luckily the rain was very light and only really showered twice. The food though - oh my goodness was divine! Hubby had reef and beef,...

We have been regular Fins' attendees over the years and it is usually a highlight. My husband, 15 Yr old and myself felt it was not as good as previous years. My 10 year old disagrees, he thought it was good

The café had a good selection of items, from takeway type foods (eg fish n chips) to reasonable sit down dining options. We found the takeaway option was reasonable but overpriced - but there are not too many options in a town this small

Don’t let the outside seating area put you off, a good selection of meals are available and come out well cooked and presented. Make sure you look at the blackboard menu when you book and order as soon as you arrive as the kitchen only has limited capacity and they get very busy. Can be a bit cool at night... More
