“Can't be serious”
Review of Cornell's Blue Fin

Cornell's Blue Fin
Cuisines: Seafood
Description: Gourmet Fish and Chips. A little more expensive than your normal fish and chip shop that's because our fish is filleted and cut fresh daily in our shop.

“Can't be serious”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

We dropped in on a Friday night. After waiting at the counter for some time we were served and were told that there were 2 menus - sit down and take away. If this had been obvious we would have sat down and chatted while we waited to be served. Having stood there for 5 minutes already we were slightly annoyed and decided to get take away instead of staying. We ordered our fish, chips and salad and selected a soft drink each - and then waited and waited and waited........while waiting I took in the near empty restaurant 3 diners followed by an additional 2, the odd phone pick up came in to collect their take away and meanwhile there were 3 staff in the open kitchen and 3 service staff (as many staff as there were customers). I watched while 2 service staff messed around and proceeded to drop 2 separate plates and smash them, and still no fish and chips.....finally after a 20 minute wait, the fish and chips emerged and the waitress realized that there was no salad prepared....so I waited again holding my fish and chips. Finally the entire order - fish, chips and salad for 2 was ready to take away......the bill - $46!!!!! This is not a business, it's a joke. Head to the take away joint at the other end of the village and get the same thing for less than half the price in a quarter the time.
