“Yum Yum Yum...”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Went back 2 days in a row. Had the Mahi Mahi salad and the spicy Tuna - both fantastic. We took a couple of beers with us and there didn't seem to be any problem enjoying one with our meal. It can be pretty busy, we waited 25 minutes one day for our meals but only 5 minutes the next. It's just bloody fresh and delicious you must pop in.

“My favourite lunch spot”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Everybody raves about this place & with good reason. We ate here 4 times for lunch & I could done more. I just could go past the FOB Mahi Mahi sandwich. The lightly crumbed fish was so fresh & the bread was nice & light. Also had the fish skewers, which were great & other friends loved other things on their menu, but give me the FOB (fresh off boat) every time......yum !

“Fresh caught fish in a seaside cafe”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

In this converted shipping container is a wonderful place for a lunch of fresh fish either with a salad or in a sandwhich, all made while you wait looking out on the lagoon. Along with it was a superb banana and passionfruit smoothie. We enjoyed it so much we went back the following day. Service was friendly and food is simply great. Not to be missed - you will love it!
