This is a great location but we stayed for lunch and it was not very good at all. We had the lunch box which had assorted fried seafood and a burger, we won't rush back.

My family of 4 had lunch here. My Wife and I had the lunch basket with fish, shrimp, calamari and fries while my boys ordered from the kids menu. The food was good as was the view of the Bay.

Family friendly, casual lunch dining experience, with simple and excellent quality dishes. The seafood was amazing quality, and the staff were friendly and pleasant. Fantastic setting, clean and tidy, no fuss dining experience. Something on this menu for everyone.

I hesitate to review this restaurant/cafe as I would rather keep it for myself. However, fantastic food, best views in the bay, not BYO but excellent pricing.

After a family wedding & weekend get together, decided to get something easy. Went to one place, which was cash only, so headed here instead. Excellent, friendly service & not too long to wait for our order. The fish & chips were tasty & value...More

I can imagine the owner smiling benignly at this question. No, it's a quality seafood cafe. Vegetarians should graze elsewhere.
