Unfortunately we were caught severely understaffed during an extremely busy lunch trade. For this we apologised and attended to our diners as quickly as possible. No one waited two hours for their meal, and we had a very full restaurant. As I explained to all my customers this day, it was an unusual combination of our cafe filling to capacity... More

We attended Fish on the Edge over the weekend, we ordered the platter for two, we found the service very good, but the fish a bit tasteless and overcooked. I don't mind deep fried, and we knew most of the produce on the platter would be, just a little more fresh not fried would be good, as the fried seafood... More

And on my Birthday, it doesn't get any better than that. Our other five guests all agreed their meals were superb as well. The $5 icecream dessert was sensational and the coffee perfect. It gets better, the staff are friendly, service is quick and overall we had a memorable night. Highly recommended is the SEAFOOD PLATTER FOR 2, flathead or... More

Only my second visit to Tasmania and I was determined to find good salmon. Everywhere else I had tried it I found to be very ordinary and bordering on disappointing. Not here though!!! It was cooked to perfection and a great portion size. Really good value for money and the service was very friendly. They obviously take pride in what... More

Great food, service & location. Large portions to satisfy our teenage sons' appetites. Lovely presentation & flavour. Would recommend booking as very busy particularly in the summer.

We just find this place today. We are seafood lovers so we are happy to find it. The food is alright but the price is a bit pricey. No wonder the place is quiet. The staff is friendly and works hard. The place is clean and nite.
