4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was really busy when we were here and the wait was long. The salt & pepper calamari was really nice and the entree size serve was generous and value for money.

Don't be in a hurry or fussy about the guy in the kitchen who doesn't use tongs or gloves ..Waitress lovely though, food pretty good and the location great. Make sure you go down to the small Beach toward the surf club for s swim or picnic.

We ate here numerous times and the meals were superb. The fish was fresh and the staff very friendly.

We had takeaway family back and kids hamburger. It was most awful we have ever had. Hamburger steak was badly burned. Fish and chips were disgusting. Tasted contaminated and fried in dirty oil. We just couldn't eat that. We are very dissapointed.

The employees were very rude and absolutely not trying to provide a good service at all. All free tables were covered in dirty dishes that none of the employees decided to clean up and food was very just average. when you are starting to get so many reviews that say the same about your business, maybe it is time to...

I visited Fishes cafe and found the food expensive and service very average. I ordered a burger which was underwhelming. Two other customers ordered take away and when they sat at one of the tables were told to leave. We were the only people there. I will not be visiting again.

Very convenient if staying at Whale Ocean apartments; good choice of food; wines a bit limited; clean; good view of Ocean; and with delightful staff.

Thank Alex M

Swoon over breathtaking sea views and the salty smell of the ocean at Point Lookout's favourite restaurant. Indulge in the whale rock big brekkie and a side of the island's best coffee. For lunch or dinner dine alfresco with a beer on tap or grab takeaway fish 'n' chips and head to Frenchman's Beach.
