Great position and views. $13 for large coffee and a thrown together over cooked chicken snitzel burger which was also pretty basic. Layered with mayonnaise and no napkins provided. Staff couldn't tell me the WIFI password. Could be so much better and stop serving breakfast at 11am. Try the place next door which is much better value.

By the time we were walking past, we were hungry and thought, fish with chips next to the sea....should be good. However, the décor is spoilt by dirty salt and pepper shakers, a lack of sauce (we are talking about fish and chips.....must have sauce) and a hint of tiredness from the atmosphere. A shame when this place has front row seating onto the beach and foot traffic that any restaurateur would be bending over backwards to please. The fish was okay (even though I had ordered battered fish and got crumbed) but the dish was poorly put together, and the place was missing the atmosphere. There is so much competition in this locale' and where some may not have a sea view, they make up for it in every other area. Dining is more than just food, it is everything and this is lacking something's. Like I say, we were curious, but I think we will try elsewhere on our next visit.

$23 for a piece of fish, 2 prawns, 2 calamari and some chips! More than double what it should cost. The prawns were delicious, marinated in garlic and crumbed.

There were four of us eating dinner and we though it was just awful. The fish was dry, the potato cakes were brown from the use of old oil. We paid over $80 for fish and chips and it was honestly the worst meal we've ever had. We ended up leaving most of it. Don't go there!!

This was the worst fish and chips of my life, very expensive! The batter was old and oily which made the food uneatable.

We all felt sick the next day from the food! Avoid this place!

What a waste of our time and money.
