“Very tasty and very friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

After arrivig in town on ANZAC Day, we went into the main strip to see what wasopen. As soon as we got out of the car we smelt delicious fish and chips wafting our way, anddecided to investigate. So glad we did!
The cafe was busy, so we got seated on the closest table to the door. We were served very quickly (it doesn't take us long to decide what to have) and ordered crumbed fish and chips, and the sampler plate. And a hot chocolate,and ginger beer. The drinks came out quickly, and my hot chocolate was perfect. Just how I like it, complete with giant marshmellow!
Out food came out not long after, even though the place was busy.
The chips were amazing, the scollops and prawns cooked perfectly, and the batter on the fish so light and it truely melted in my mouth. The crumbed fish my husband had was pretty tasty too.
The best thing about the dinner was probably the service. All the staff were very friendly with big smiles to greet the customers.

Other people have mentioned that it's expensive... but it really isn't that much more than your local fish and chippery... and you always have to add a few dollars extra to eat in, and because it's not in a major city (it costs extra money to transport things out here).

“The only fish shop in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

Even tho they were very busy on the 2nd April 2012 for dinner the two staff did a great job, nice relaxed atmosphere very clean looking dining area and kitchen, the cooks did a great job too. The food was nice and hot, not greasy and good value for money.

“Quick and easy fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

Loved the fish and chips. We just wanted some quick take-away one night to take to watch the sunset at Ocean Beach. The food was great and price was reasonable. Service was quick too - didn't have to wait too long even though the restaurant was reasonably busy.

“Overpriced and underfed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

We just lobbed there and after eating just wished we hadn't. Don't think the fish were caught locally. My wife had trevella, which was small but OK. I had 2 small flatty fillets which were pretty tasteless. Both came with some chips and salad. The price of her trevella $16.50. The price of my flatty fillets $18.50. Should have gone to the fish and chip shop on the other side of the road.
