This basic cluster of buildings little more than sheds and freezers offers a large selection of amazing fish and seafood. The staff are friendly and efficient and it's so popular numbers in the shop have to be limited at busy times. Choose your own fish for cooking with chips to eat at one of the many picnic tables on site... More

Don't let the look of the place get the better of you. Park up and go straight in to enjoy the best fish and chips there is. Pick your own fish fillets to be cooked fresh from the trawler. They have lots of other seafood besides fish but that's all I eat seafood wise so can't comment on other options.... More

We went for dinner with our four year old. Not the usual fish and chip shop. Its fresh and you pick your own fresh choice of seafood for them to cook. We paid $50 we would have been better off eating at seaworld resort in their restaurant. Its fresh and local but a bit too expensive we thought.

Luckily no real queue, but beware we hear it is very popular. Pick your fish hand it to be cooked the way you want, select any other of many fishy accessories and chips, then take away or eat outside on the benches and tables. So simple and so tasty. Excellent value for top quality food.

Nice food but long queue during lunch time. I like the experience of buying our own seafood and eating at the nice weather outside the resturant.

This place looks a bit dingy but my god the fish and chips are sensational! as fresh as you can get and cooked to perfection. We came back a couple of times while on our stay just because we loved the food so much. Even with the ever present seagulls eating outside alone the water was also a great part... More
