I like to go on a cool day, to choose oyster and a handful of prawns. There are a few different types of prawn to choose from. Then, straight home and eat! Yum. Staff very friendly and seafood very fresh.

Was disappointed when we arrived to find it was really just a shop. Was expecting more space, more seafood and more stalls.

Went there at xmass 2017 to buy some fresh seafood, was a fairly small set up but had lots of variety. Was quite expensive so i didn't buy as much as i would usually.

Very fresh seafood and ice offered to get supplies home cold. The best tasting and reasonable price. I come here regularly, when I have the inclination to eat seafood. Bring a cooler bag or esky.

Went to buy some prawns yesterday and they were around the same price as the supermarkets in town. We bought the 5kg box for $125 which worked out cheaper if you have time to eat that many. We had 7 people and a few days...More
