We dropped in for a snack and watch the feeding of "George" to massive groper. We had a bucket of prawns and a fish taco dish. Both good sized snacks and nicely flavoured. Service was great and prices were reasonable. Nice outlook with marine traffic...More

We came back 3 times . Guess that should say it all ! Food is exceptional . Try the Pan fried Coral Trout or the Fish Curry although all the meals on the menu are terrific.

Amazing food!!! We went twice for dinner and both times the food was great. There is the feeding of the 250kg Groper at 5pm each day and the view and atmosphere was worth the visit.

We had been here many years ago. It was much better then. We had the whole fish of the day, which was overdone, and seemed much smaller than the 600gr promised. They still feed the grouper, but this also was not done too well, and...More

Hi Sue, sorry to hear that your expectations were disappointed! We haven't changed anything about the way we feed George, and we haven't changed our fish of the day either! Hopefully we may see you another day, perhaps once we have moved to our new...More
