Friends recommended this place and we all tried it. Excellent. Lots of fish choices and all good. The restaurant is in an historic building and the service is very friendly. Everyone enjoyed our lunch.

The restaurant is a 2 minute walk basically down to the end Syme Street from Gem Pier. Google maps says it’s 120 metres. An easy walk :)
