I could tasted one of the worst burger ever ! The chips was frozen chips, definitively not fresh chips but what saved you from getting 2 stars was the hand made brownie. PS: burgers are not made with a huge and flat meat ball

Stokes Bay is a stunning beach, tucked away behind the rocks - and the café is perfectly located and very popular. Our fish and chips were good - but not wow. Service was great.

What a great find at Stokes Bay! After adventuring through the rocks and exploring the beach we were ready for a snack and got an amazingly fresh and tasty King George whiting, chips and salad along with a sneaky lunchtime cider! Well worth the stop.

Excellent service and the freshest whiting presented with crisp fries and colourful salad! A delight!!! Finished with a perfect Long Black! Children’s playground kept young ones happy and the view was the perfect accompaniment to our meal!

This is a cute little beachside place. The food was so fresh and delicious. I'm not a huge fan of seafood but the fish and chips were so good I might be a convert. Also be sure to have a Giant Twin ice cream bar...More

Had crumbed whiting and chips. Fish very tasty and fresh. Two reasonable pieces. We weren’t very hungry so plenty to share. Shoestring fries. Not our favourite, but cooked well. Lovely view.
