Location is ok but spoiled by masses of seagulls desperately trying to get a free meal. Obviously they saw more in the food than we did. Awful calamari and terrible chips - most of which went in the trash. The best part of the meal was the cold bottled beer. Meals served in takeaway boxes. General lack of condiments. Overpriced.

We ordered our food and watched in dismay the awful service and arrogant attitude . Their overpriced Calamari was off and we were told it wasn't their fault coz it Was all frozen and I wonder if Dept Fair Trade would agree their advertising was very misleading . Fish cocktails batter was undercooked and chips tasteless . Alcohol was served... More

I have been visiting Kiama for many years and have eaten here on lots of occasions but never again! The lady serving was extremely rude and uninterested. There was no lemon with my flathead, I was told they were waiting on a delivery. Any decent seafood business would ensure they had lemons whether they were waiting on a delivery or... More

Visited this place with the family , owners uninterested in customers and very rude. They obviously don't rely on repeat business. Ordered flathead and chips with calamari and chips. The drinks price is exorbitant ! Flathead arrived, basically the worst fish I've ever eaten, the $4.80 lemonade didn't help wash it down. Left it on the table only to be... More

This Harbourside restaurant is managed by a very nasty older woman. She is belligerent and abusive and seems to view herself as a superior being. They use frozen fish fillets despite advertising the fish as 'fresh' and have no idea how to use a deep fryer. aVoiD at all costs!

We come down from Sydney each year and always end up here for lunch. Busy, but excellent reliable food, fast service, fantastic view. Great chips. Only drawback: public toilets aren't all that close. Four minute walk away. But they've been upgraded (the toilets) and this year they have soap. Meanwhile, the chips: hot, gold and crunchy.

Chicken was so over cooked it was like leather, we couldn't eat it. Over priced and such a waste of money.
