Stopped here for about 20 minutes if you are not going to eat at the cafe probably long enough able to feed salmon for free and get some photos. Has good toilet facilities obviously geared up for tourists. You can buy salmon here in various forms. Definitely worth a stop and I would say children would enjoy the salmon feeding experience.

Stunning quality salmon from the most pristine waters. This is the best salmon i've ever had. Will definitely get this again via online order.

They have salmon... but if you want something cooked you have to get there before 3:30 exactly. So it basically shuts at 3:30.

Make no mistake - this is a salmon farm first and foremost that sells salmon direct to the public and has a bit of a cafe. The whole complex sits on pontoons with large pools and nets - where the salmon grow to become the delicious snack we all like. You can get a coffee there, and they do have fresh sushi, pastries, etc - but the salmon farm is the main business Having said that - its still worth a visit. The have small containers of salmon food you can take out of the cafe into a deck area - and feed some mature salmon (or the ducks as the case may be). Good fun for the kids. The cafe has pretty standard fare (it wont win any prizes) - but some of the items are good (such as the salmon pies). The range of salmon products is impressive (fillets, fins sushi, etc). How about smoked salmon cured in oak! Definitely worth a visit and the kids will enjoy it.
