We have been Coast regular's for past 6 years. But disappointed with fish and chips takeaways today. Chips were fine - but fish was greasy/ small portions and not fresh blue cod.

Fantastic little restaurant overlooking the sea at Kakanui. Great seafood chowder and prawns and calamari served by lovely, happy waitresses. Ideal way to have a casual evening meal after a day travelling.
