Delicious seafood. Quick service, old fashioned outdoor wooden tables and chairs. Rustic vibe, friendly people and seals (quite active). A good time was held by all.

The atmosphere wins hands down. The LONG queue is worth the wait. the shopping at the harbour is lovely (take cash) and the west coast wine was lso nice at Kalky's. The food was delicious and fresh. The pickled octopus was great!

The food is most of the time fresh and well cooked. At times it can be dry and overcooked but overall an awesome eating place on the harbour. Their calamari, chips and fish platter but the calamari can be a bit more as they can...More

Hi, Dave Kalky's is a very casual place. You order your food and sit at any available table, inside or outside. I am not sure about credit cards but I definate not debit cards. I always pay cash.
