This processing facility is an interesting place to visit. The self-guided audio tour is informative and the staff ready to share their knowledge. Well worth a visit.

We had lunch there and also did the self guided tour of the factory. Food is great. Lobster halves are between $39 - $48? With a side of chips, rice or coleslaw. Very popular place with the asians.

Drove all the way to Cervantes just for the lobster. Lots of tourists and a few locals. Lobsters were graded based on size. The day we reached they only left with size A, which is the smallest. Wasn't cheap at all as it was charged...More

For the amount we paid ($77 for two) we were expecting a huge serving of unforgettable food. Unfortunately the lobster was fresh and cooked well but tasted so bland. The fried rice and coleslaw were also quite tasteless. The best thing was probably the chips...More

Unfortunately, upon our arrival at 3:15pm, we found the café to be closed. Tours of the processing plant, on the other hand, were still operating at $ 10.00 a head. Not being of a volition to pay to view what is typically a daily activity,...More

This stop provided us with very fresh seafood for lunch. We had the bucket of cooked cold prawns and half a lobster (should have ordered two as it was superb)! Very casual dining in the outdoor open garden area.
