“worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Good menu, good food and reasonably priced. If you want you can order takeaway and walk across to the beach. Good little venue close to the beach. Worth a visit

“Great People Watching”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Our lunch was what you would expect from a fast food fish (& chips) restaurant across from Manly Beach. Everything was a little greasy, not very healthy, but tasty. Take out is available.

“Get the Fisherman's bucket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

A cold beer and a fishbucket for two will hit the spot after a morning dip in the ocean. Friendly waitstaff and a great location next to the Corso. Everything in the bucket is either raw (Oysters) or fried (prawns and fish), but it was really good!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Had a excellent lunch here when it first open and returned today and very pleased to say the standard was just as good. It's opposite the beach in amounts all the little cafes/restaurants ...it's has great table setting with little buckets n newspaper napkins etc....I ordered 1/2 bucket of prawns( so fresh n nice big one) n salt n pepper calamari hubby had battered snapper n chips which arrived in a mini fish basket very cute but absolutely delicious ...oh n the caramelized onion bread is to die for( as long as u arnt dieting as it ozzes butter but in a finger licking good way)... Thing we liked service excellent, water straight to the table n drink orders taken...good timing between bread n main...good size servings ( we couldn't fit in ice cream)... Condiments on table salt, sauce n vinegar n all container spotlessly clean...large serving sizes of sauces with meals..the price( bread to share, 1/2 bucket prawns, calimari, snaper n chips n soft drink under $70....
