Nice little shop with coolers full of fresh smoked and candied fish and assortment of seafood. Had great gift packages that were able to bring home with us on the plane. Lady that works there was very knowledgeable about everything in the shop.

Good selection of smoked and jerk fish, both for local consumption and taking back home. Prices seem reasonable and service is helpful and efficient. Worth stopping in!

Coming from inland Ontario, we wanted to try some locally-caught smoked wild salmon. We were shocked by the prices so we only purchased a small piece. They had several flavours available. Afterward, we walked down the street to the local co-op grocery store and found...More
