“Nice Exterior Dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Friendly staff. Laid back atmosphere. Actually at the time I ate here - they were preparing live music. Nice. Food was authentic - with plenty of interesting choices to choose from. Had the "Chicken Sensation" for $18. One can sit inside or outside of the restaurant. Great experience.
Looking over past the road is a great view of the beaches; surfers everywhere. Great atmosphere.

“Great service, great food, great host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Cafe Fresh and Shinsen is our favourite fortnightly restaurant. When you let Nick the host order your food you know that you'll get something different & delicious which will make you keep coming back. We love the tapas menu.

“FRESH IS REALLY FRESH !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Dined at Cafe Fresh & Shinsen - lunch. Excellent range of dishes - Unusual that you can get Japanese AND Modern Australian/Greek food on the same order at the same establishment with a wide range to choose from. The Food was really Fresh ! and the wines well priced and well selected for variety. The dinner menu looks great too.

Had several incredible meals here. Loved that you can Oder from the main menu OR the Japanese.
