Called in for coffee and scones on our way to Merimbula. Had been quite a few times a few years ago so was looking forward to scones and coffee. The coffee was lovely but we got date scones which we didn't ask for and when I asked for plain scones I was told there were none. I wish I had... More

Ordered 2 fish chips 2 potato scollops salad take away. Waited a long time as the server? went for a smoke break leaving the counter unattended. We finely got our order - the chips chips not on the order no salt and one set of cutlery bit of a joke. Need better staff and a good clean up.

It was very very greasy, actually everything but the chips was over cooked & swimming in oil. I ordered 15 fish cocktails & all but 4 of them were all stuck & cooked together in one... More

This was the worst experience that I had on my whole holiday. My freinds and I ordered hamburgers as well as fish and chips and some prawns. They forgot to make 1 order, and nobody in our group ate their burger after the first bite. We were really hungry as we had just surfaced after scuba diving, but the buns... More

We had lunch at Saltwater on 11 Feb 2017. We were out sightseeing in the area and we arrived around 2pm. We were pleased to see that they served lunch until 3pm. We ordered 2 x Fish of the Day - 1 grilled Mahi Mahi and 1 battered Flake. Both meals were absolutely delicious and our plates were completely cleared.... More

Where do I start?? Looked up on TripAdvisor the times that this business was open until and it said 8pm. We got there from travelling from Tilba at 7.15, and whilst it's not a huge drive it was the reason we travelled into Bermagui was to try out this fish and chip shop. When we arrived the roller windows were... More

Have just purchased takeaway lunch for the family since under new management. Was aweful. Soggy chips. Burnt fish. Forgot calamari from order. Over cooked nuggets. So disappointing. Will not recommend new owners.
