The service was excellent, lovely views, great cafe setting. Unfortunately the fish was so bad it was inedible. Squid was nice.

Had a lovely dinner here on a Sunday night. Calamari and prawns pack. Should have had one pack to share between 2 people. Hot, tasty and delicious seafood. Only open Wednesday-Sunday.

Weather was terrible, but cosy enough inside with the wood heater. Food was OK with the highlight being the Salt & Pepper squid.

Bought seafood basket for two and fish had zero taste at all. Thought fish would be very tasty. Obviously not fresh but frozen. Would eat elsewhere if had choice again. On the flip side staff were great.

This is the best fish and chips and squid rings we have eaten. The squid rings were fresh and the batter stays on the fillet.

Great quality fish, everything was fresh. Loved the venue it had a classic fish and chip style. Portion size was on the small side. Loved it!

I was disappointed with the Squid Shack. Over cooked food, a bit expensive for what we got. Was busy on the day we wanted to get Fish & Chips so we went back the next day. Ordinary sit down area, could do with a revamp.

Do order the fishcakes, really nice and the red snapper fish and chips are steaky and chewy. Nice twist. I had the shark fish and chips which were quite tender. Not to be missed the P&S squid and chips....
