I had fish and chips and a glass of wine for a quick meal. The service was quick and efficient. The food was excellent, nicely presented and reasonably priced. The Ingram's Road merlot was very good as well. Well done Ferryman Seafood Cafe.

Occasionally you find a waiter who is providing service but so friendly that you feel you've known them for a long time and brought a smile to our faces. The Jamaican fish soup was amazing. Incredibly tasty and very filling. Could not finish it. Lots...More
