This is where the locals get their fish-n-chips AND ice-cream. Never have we had such fresh fish. Couldn't stop eating the chips - after inhaling the fish! Delightful staff. Sooo good.

Friendly service. Fish & Chips did not meet my expectations. Fish fresh but was greasy. My wife being vegetarian had salad and corn fritters - she said that did not meet her expectations.
