Great food fast. Fresh fish and reasonably priced. Right in town looking out to the harbor. Takeaway or eat there at the picnic tables. Staff is friendly. Open late and every day. Generous servings. Will return!

Happy hour day is Wednesday & a whopping $3.50 will get you a burger. Awesome steak meal on offer with eggs onions, salad & chips for $18. The fish burger is well well worth it!

Went to the Palace and I had a fish burger. A few of my friends had the Palace burger with chips. I recommend you go there more than once to try the different burgers. They all tasted great.
