“Great fish and chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I visited here on a Saturday afternoon, and could not fault the place. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress, and shown to a table with great views overlooking the sea. The menu had a very good choice of fresh fish, however we both went for the standard fish and chips which we thought was excellent, some of the best I have ever had. I would definitely recommend this restaurant; friendly and helpful staff, great sea views, and excellent food!

“Woth walking a bit further to find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Found this establishemnt by accident as its slightly off the main walk to the harbour arm. Does have great views of sea and north harbour arm.
Excellent specials when we visited including scallops, lobster and crab. Crab was very enjoyable and well presented. Other choices were available.
