After an interesting walk around Kissing Point and Jezzine Barracks we walked down to The Rockpool and had lunch at Fish Inn. Service was quick and polite - food was yummy and the view out to the rockpool was lovely.

The coffee was awesome. The muffin was fresh and delicious. The service was prompt and pleasant. Fresh cold water delivered almost as soon as I sat down. Menu explained quickly and was not complicated as can be the case.
