Recently in Melbourne with my wife staying at Quest on Chapel right opposite from this cafe. Great atmosphere & great value for money. Both had the seafood & salad which was enormous, & tasted great. In fact I'd say it was the best seafood meal I've tasted in a long, long time. Seated outside & the weather was ideal. The service boys & girls were extremely friendly & efficient. Look for it it will be well-worth the effort.

I have eaten here multiple times and have had a great dining in/ take away experience. All the staff are very friendly and their customer service is fantastic, great to see such a busy place full of smiles and friendly people. The food is A+, ultra fresh and non greasy. Some fantastic options if your watching your waist line and even if your not you walk away feeling like you have eaten healthy! I would recommend the "Bay Pack" and a cold Peroni from the chiller!
Great Service, quick delivery, and fresh! Keep up the good work guys.

I've been here a few time now, and its getting to that point where I crave for their delicious dish of the MEXICAN with chips and quinoa salad! The flavours that they use for the Mexican is Devine and full of taste! I would like to try something new next time but I'm always craving my number one Mexican! Hunky dory you've got a number fan :) ! Such a food vibe to be at and very kind staff !

For quick healthy meal this it one of the best in Clarendon St for an easy meal. Served on a 30 cm plate with chips and choice of salad, it is hard to beat the value for money. A place worth visiting for a weekly fish dinner

After hearing great reviews about this placeI had to try it. Service was great with very helpful staff. We ordered grilled calamari and grilled blue grenadier with salad and chips.
First problem - chips were cold and served right next to the salad which made them soggy. Hiorrible. The chips were nothing special either. The fish was raw in the middle and had bones. It was also flavourless. The only redeming feature of the meal was that the calamari was cooked well. Its not a complete avoid but very dissapointing compared to the hype. Best to go for a walk have F& C at Hooked down the other end of Chapel St.
