So Kiama. Fish and chips, plus Mexican wrap and two soft drinks. $27. Walked across Terralong St and ate it in the park under spreading trees while watching the comings and goings of this heavenly town. Do it.

Stopped by for dinner on recommendation by a local. We had the seafood platter for two and tempura flathead... The grilled fish was good, but everything else was pretty ordinary. Next time we come to Kiama we will try somewhere else - plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from. The staff were good.

We stopped here for Sunday relaxing lunch. Meals came quickly calamari and fish cocktails were great and coffee strong how we like it. Great selection of juices.

I ordered crispy bacon with my breakfast which was happily accommodated. The bacon I received was delicious and crispy just the way I like it.

We stopped in here for lunch after the blow holes. We wished we had stopped somewhere else. They were quick to take our order and super slow to deliver. At least 3 other tables came in after us and were done eating before we received our food. I think they lost our order somewhere. And the food was VERY average.... More

Good selection, seemed fresh and reasonably quick service. Was clean and reasonably well presented compared to many of its peers. May be slightly more $ but I'd pay that again for good fresh food in a nice setting....

Made changes to the set menu, which were willingly accommodated and still ended up with fast friendly eat in service. Even a small menu glitch was quickly rectified in our favor Meals were fresh and tasty, service fast and friendly and the environment is clean.

Staff here were very friendly. Coffee is delicious. Had the seafood chowder and partner had a fish burger. We were both very satisfied!

Staff do not listen to your order, I have been twice now and they always stuff up my order then act like it was my fault. Food is always cold and dissatisfying when getting eat in and utensils are dirty. Overall, staff are rude, food is gross, overpriced and place is unhygienic.

Food is gross, tables are dirty and staff don't present themselves as clean. There is a way to get the meal cheaper, all you say is 'local business', if you don't then they charge tourists and people who don't know about it more than twice the price. I have gotten a meal for $10 once as I said local business... More
