Service wasn’t great and the food less than ordinary. Chips were extremely dry, prawns were not deveined on the skewers and the kids fish cocktails tasted like the were made with Basa fillets ☹️

Friendly staff and good seafood. Tasty seafood platters or lobster meals that you can either eat there or take away. It's located right by the water, so watch out for the sea gulls!

Lovely fresh seafood .. we had the platter for two and it was delicious .. it is pricey for the size though and You have to pay for your dipping sauces extra .

underwhelmed 😔 Plenty of menu items to choose from. take away or cafe style eat-in (fending off the pigeons) But Well overpriced (fresh, local?) for fish & chips Seriously overbattered in proportion to the fish. Shocked that the Tiny pots of sauce weren’t included.
