I have dined at this Cafe several times over the years. Ownership changes from time to time but quality of the food is always excellent. On my recent visit the scallops and blue cod were both delectable.

They do the best fish and chips in town. Plus I had mine grilled instead of battered - yum yum yum - it came in foil with beautiful seasoning. They have a café area as well which we will try next time.

We have come here twice now and have totally enjoyed everything from the service to the meals. Highly recommend the prawn cocktail and bluff oysters! Nice friendly staff and good prices. Down to earth seafood cafe.

My wife and I wanted only a couple of pieces of hoki fish and a scoop of chips (for $9.60) for our Friday night dinner while in the nearby Albatross Motel. Joined a moderately long queue. Enjoyed reading the 20 or more pages of jokes,...More

We had fish & chips as a takeaway the first night we were in the motel. Getting late so just decided as it was just around the corner that is what we would have. Very nice too, not greasy as some places are. Very enjoyable.
