Dropped in after a morning of tourist driving. Lovely staff who helped us decide which fish to choose. Cooked perfectly, chips were wonderful. We took it over to the park and ate looking out to sea. Well priced and delicious

Worst seafood basket ever! Greasy, undercooked, soggy chips - and over priced - as well as the insistence on cash only - don't bother, wish I hadn't!

Average fish and chips , wouldn't bother, we were drawn to this shop as it had fresh fish in the window but didn't taste fresh at all, wasn't horrible but expected more.

Ordered 8 prawn cutlets at $2.50 each totalling $20. Should have been called crumbed battered prawn tail. After removing the greasy crumbed batter, there was a resemblance of 'tiny prawn substance' with tail? Really shameful and disrespectful of customers.
