this is a relaxed café but the prices don't reflect that it is only a café. the staff are friendly but very slow. having eaten there previously, I was disappointed that the servings have noticeably shrunk. the food was so so. it's a real shame because this café has such potential. I will give it one more chance.

Yes, a great location. Blackfish is a quiet cafe overlooking the water. We were there twice in a fortnight with different friends. The service was friendly, efficient and helpful when we needed a slight change of tables. The food, while not being super best was quite tasty and generous.The chips were good! I found that my corn fritters were just... More

Main meals were also large but nice, I had the prawn, bacon, chilli linguini I was quite shocked to find coriander in the bruschetta and the linguini I could only... More

The location is lovely. The food really good but we waited over 1hr for our order to be taken with no service from staff then when we got our food we were asked if we could vacate the table because they needed it for lunch. Very disappointed

One of the great hidden gems in the Shire in a great location. The staff are friendly and seem to try hard. But the service is just awfully woefully slow -- 10 minutes for a small milkshake for my young bloke, and another 10 minutes for a single scone with jam for him. We've been here a few times --...

Family of 7 with grandparents and teenagers. Good coffee, great toast, fantastic eggs and bacon. Portions were generous, service very good. Great location. A little expensive but we recommend this one is worth visiting for breakfast/lunch.

Had lunch with two friends at this cafe on a Saturday afternoon. We had a table outside by the water with amazing views and in a was very relaxed setting. The food was really nice - I had prawn pappardelle which was well cooked and the prawns were fresh and tasty. My friends enjoyed their salt and pepper squid and... More

This cafe has been a family favourite. We hired it for my husbands 50th and would come here at least once a month to eat. The menu was simple but everything superb, we spent many an afternoon sipping a glass of wine enjoying fish cakes, risotto or salad. Unfortunately the new owners/chef do not do the amazing location justice. My... More

This cafe/restaurant is nestled in a slightly hidden location next to Como pool. It overlooks the water and the view is really fabulous, calm and relaxing. We had very attentive service and the menu well caters for gluten free options. We started with the haloumi which was one of the best I have ever had. My friend chose salt and... More

Disappointing Saturday lunch for two without a booking on sunny day with a perfect table by the water. This is my second review of this cafe as clearly there have been several changes here. New owner? New chef? Clearly no-one working here really cares about the customer or the food. Such a shame as my previous four star review was... More
