We visited this restaurant based on our tour guides recommendation and it did not disappoint. The catch of the day Rueben sandwich was great. It would have received five stars but we ate outside and the heat was a little difficult to deal with, but I guess that is not the restaurant's fault.

Definitely a fun place. Good luck getting the cat to let you pet her. The sampler appetizer including the smoked fish should not be missed. Just let the helpful wait staff tell you what the best fish dish is for the evening. Great place, cheap, interesting beers. Go there.

Right on the harbour and you can grab lunch or dinner right after your activity at the harbour. Slow service. Expected more to the menu with having fresh fish. Have been to better bars/pubs at marina's in the states. Great location at the harbour.

So me make a special trip there for lunch. I was very excited about trying them out because of the reviews.

Bite Me is a little hard to find (the directions included "it's across from the bathrooms") and once there, it did NOT look like much. It's rustic and not very well lit--a bit of a "hole in the wall". A fish counter greets you as you enter the front door and dining is on a small back deck overlooking the... More

A favorite of locals and tourists. If your at the harbor for any reason stop for lunch at Bite Me. The fish is so fresh, it's right off the boat. Sit at picnic tables under umbrellas and enjoy a cold beer with the days catch. Yum!

Service was good food so so, local beer was in can and tasted like can. Setting was okay, no bathrooms in the building so if there at night you have to go across parking lot to another building, not very safe at all!
