Great food as usual, with fantastic gluten free options. Unfortunately the service was terrible. Our number was called, we went and got our food and made our way back to our holiday home. We then realised we did not have the right order so went back to sort it out. The lady behind the counter was incredibly rude and insulting,... More

$10 blue cod and chips - very generous pieces of cod. The batter was rather thick and not crispy. We had 4 blue cod and chips and 3 squid rings for three adults and two children and this was just right - cost $50+, so not a cheap meal! Only one table and four chairs, so not really suited for...

It was a busy night when we were there but they definitely burled through the orders so we didn't have to wait for long. We just ordered the normal fish which in hindsight we shouldn't have as we are quite used to enjoying blue cod or similar. We found the fish was varied in its cooking, some ok, some a... More

Fish and chips are the best, and after a swim at the hot pools these guys do the best frozen yoghurt real fruit ice creams! At really good prices too!

Quick and tasty food , reasonably priced. Would go back there. Great friendly service. The couches inside are a great touch on a cold evening. Nice comfy seating watching tv while waiting for takeaway. Great burgers!

we had a burger each which was pretty average, the sign said best burgers in hanmer but very debatable i'd say. got a bacon and cheese roll which was delicious and chips which were a bit overcooked but the nice chicken salt made them ok. the man cooking burgers was super friendly but the lady serving wasnt!!

Wrote an earlier review to say this establishment was never open. Wish it had stayed that way! Ordered a cheese, tomato and mushroom burger with no meat (I have been ordering this same burger from many establishments for the past 30 years with no issues). The burger was just soggy slop. By the time I had reached the car the... More

When reading the menu to see if we were going to have our dinner there, the lady behind the counter said that the fish and burgers will really good. I was actually looking to have a toastie, but decided a burger would be fine on her recommendation. The burger patty seemed frozen, not fresh, and the rest of it was... More
