Good service at Squid Shack and busy around dinner time. The fisherman's basket was a hit and miss: some of the seafood was lovely, fresh and nicely cooked, but some, including the chips, were not. I did like the option of half serves!

Friendly and efficient staff. Fresh, local produce. I especially liked the tempura squid. You're given a buzzer to alert you when your order is ready. All this in a sheltered and picturesque dining room.
