Had some crayfish, prawns, mussels and rice. Enjoyed every bit of it. They were so well made. Soft and fresh..you can never get enough. The staffs there were very friendly and were more than glad to help us with our choices. I especially love the crayfish. They are priced differently..ranging from $60 to $150 (I think). You can park nearby... More

Fresh and quick. We had soup, fish, prawns, and crayfish all for under $50. Kids were amazed how quick it was served to use. Service was great and friendly. Great place to sit in the sun and enjoy.

We were driving from the walk beach and spotted this kiosk. Lovely fresh sea food that is cooked right in front of your eyes. All the family thoroughly enjoyed it. Recommend it!

We ordered Blue cod meal with salad to eat on plastic plate on roadside table. It was $15 a meal. All we got was one very small piece of rather dry blue cod done on grill with white rice and three pieces of lettuce with capsicum and red onion. A very uninteresting and disappointing fish meal from this seaside town... More

The amount of food for $8 was amazing! Huge whitebait fritter with fresh salad, lemon wedge and rice. All in a decent sized container. Very impressive. Half crayfish was served with extras as well. Well done...you guys are awesome.

On Good Friday, I was fasting until we drove by this place. Could not resist the temptations from this place, I broke fast over the seafood platter and it was worth every single bite. All three fritters were delicious, and the paua fritter was very interesting. Super fresh and yummy scallops. Perfectly matched salad and good bread with awesome texture.... More

Great stop for some delicious BBQ seafood with a great view. You can get a range of different seafood platters and sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view over the water. But watch out for the seagulls, DON'T LEAVE YOUR FOOD UNATTENDED! A girl sitting next to us went up to get a drink and all here food got devoured... More

The girls behind the counter are not smiling. There was not really any exchanges possible since they gave us the menu translated into our language before we even asked them anything. Synonymous of a real factory. And the food is really not exceptional. We had asked for a plate of seafood, we had fish "omelettes", which we never know the... More

Recommended by Lonely Planet. Freshly cooks seafood to order on BBQ outdoors. Very good and cheaper than the local restaurants. Everything served in a sandwich or with rice and salad. Open daily weather permitting from 11am
