“Great seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

We had the blue cod, orange roughy, oysters, mussels, seafood chowder, skewered prawns, squid rings and everything was fresh and well done. The "orange roughy", a deep sea fish, tasted great and different from typical grilled or fried fish. Service was fast and friendly :) There is also a electrical massage chair where you could have a $2 back massage while waiting for the food!

“Fantastic fish & chips, and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

We went in search of the van by the lake front that's recommended in the guide books. Luckily we asked a local where it was supposed to be parked and were told it had moved to a shopfront in the main street.
Just as well we asked otherwise we may have missed this unassuming place and missed some fantastic fish and chips. The service from the husband and wife team was first class and the meal freshly cooked and well priced.

Fantastic fish at this warm, unassuming and unpretentious joint. Lightly battered, very fresh and oh so delicious. Don't miss it!

“Best Burgers in NZ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Had the lamb burger on my way through Te Anau (to Milford Sound)...it was sensational. Had to have another on the way back from Milford Sound the very next day.

Wish you had a shop in Australia as well.
