If you want a lovely quaint spot to sit and look over the water while eating your fish & chips, this is the spot for you! A favorite location to visit whenever at that part of the coast. Fish & Chips are always good. This trip, we were fishing on the lake, so did a coffee run, which was lots... More

I had heard that this place had the best fish & chips on the whole south coast, so I came here to find out if that was true. Well they certainly weren't bad, in fact the fish was sweet and cooked to perfection, but I'm afraid they had appeared to have let their oil get a bit old and so... More

This year though we were out kayaking as usual when I decided to surprise my made fishing wife with a take away cutlets and chips after mooring to... More

The boys running this boat shed really made an impact on my husband and I as they were more confident and competent than any of the grown adults we had come across on our holiday. Would like to know their parents secrets as i would be very proud for my son to turn out anything like them.

On the edge of the Tuross Head water inlet, this place has amazing battered fish at pretty good prices. Have been here with a friend previously and decided I would take my partner here too, because not only is the food delicious but the scenery is wonderful as well. They also offer boat hire, but we didn't try that this... More

The location, right by the lake, is excellent; we enjoyed do much dining on tables under the shade of the big umbrellas and listening to the lapping of the waves by our feet and boats going past or pulling up. The fish and chips were perfect - fresh local fish is just so much better than prepared from frozen. The... More

Beautiful setting, very relaxing. Was lunching with my partner and kids. Food didn't arrive all together, my partner had already finished his burger by the time my meal came. I had salt and pepper squid which was over cooked and bland, the beer battered chip were good though. The burger was nice and kids chips and nuggets were ok too.

We haven't been to Tuross for about 10 years and were a little bit fearful of not finding a decent coffee. The Boatshed fixed all that with a surprisingly good coffee with a bonus ginger thin biscuit. The setting on the lake is superb. We went back the next day for lunch and the flathead and chips were very good.... More
