Great food selection. Not too cheap however the take away is good value. $9.50 for my favourite fish and chips. Possibly the best in a very competitive market. Service can be slow but this is mainly due to the crowds.

Picked this seafood cafe based on the reviews and comments and pleased to report that I was not disappointed. One customer whinged at me that she did not like the fish and would not return, while we were filling our cups with water. She also complained that she could only carry 2 cups at a time. The staff are friendly.... More

The staff were lovely but the meal was average for $30. It was a plate full of chips with a piece of fish, 2 prawns, 2 scallops ands a couple of pieces of calamari and a very average salad.

We traveled from Jervis Bay to Kiama, stopping by to have our fish and chip lunch. The blue grenader fish is very fresh and tasty, and we request for salad instead of chips. We also ordered calamari pack of 10. Both are tasty and delicious, we enjoy our lunch very much. I think it taste better than Pelican seafood fish... More

A nice & clean place on the Main Street of Kiama. I had beer battered flathead with chips. The fish was divine with a light batter. Although have to pay for sauce which I find annoying.

Great spot for breakfast and a good coffee. I had the BEST breakfast wrap I have had there. The thick cut bacon and salsa make it wonderful, and the friendly service and smiles are always appreciated. I will always stop off there on my trips up and down the coast, cheers.

I consider this restaurant/café to have the best fish and chips in Kiama. Located on Terralong Street it is slap bang in the centre of town. Outside tables are a great place to be on a warm day with good views across to Hindmarsh Park. I particularly like the fish and chips here. Either crumbed or done in tempura batter... More

Came in with a couple and had 3 fantastic meals... they were delicious... would have given 4 stars if i didn't have to pay for sauce on a 30$ meal (barramundi with 5 king prawns cooked in foil on chips). All meals were really nice and well garnished. Clean place to relax on the main street.

So Kiama. Fish and chips, plus Mexican wrap and two soft drinks. $27. Walked across Terralong St and ate it in the park under spreading trees while watching the comings and goings of this heavenly town. Do it.

Stopped by for dinner on recommendation by a local. We had the seafood platter for two and tempura flathead... The grilled fish was good, but everything else was pretty ordinary. Next time we come to Kiama we will try somewhere else - plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from. The staff were good.
