“worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

We visited at a very busy time, so can excuse it somewhat, very difficult to get a table or anywhere to park yourself! You definitely have to know what you want before you approach the counter. However the fish was excellent ,and all the group were happy with their order- but a bit mean charging for tomato ketchup, as it was pricey enough for the surroundings.

“Reasonable value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

The fish is quite tasty with the salad on the side. Service is quick and friendly. Not the cheapest in town but probably worth it for the good quality meal. Worth a try for sure.

“A good quick bite when on the go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Grab a box of choice and head to the beach and enjoy a really nice fish or seafood snack. Not more, but definitely not less.

“Nice and fresh food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Fresh fish and chips. Good service though it does get quite hectic at times which means longer wait and lots of patience. Over all a nice place to have some seafood.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

I was there yesterday and ordered barrimundi with a cashew and walnut crust w/ chips served with dill aioli (from the specials board).. It was actually amazing. Best barrimundi I've ever had and it was so fresh. The chips were nice and crispy just how I like them! If I lived in Byron I'd go every day. I will definitely eat here again next time I'm in Byron. I don't understand the negative comments on here.. maybe they ordered the wrong thing.
