I always visit the Fish Inn in Marburg when I work in the area. Its only take away. I have tried many things on the menu and its always been fresh and tasty. Its not overpriced and the food is consistent. Try the fish cakes, mild or spicy with a portion of chips. Simple , good food. Highly recommended.

Despite advertising as a fish specialist, these guys make a mean curry to which is finger licking good. The Waitress Rani served me - she is attentive and professional and in my personal opinion she adds to this delightful restaurant credibility. The restaurant is situated prominently in Shelly Beach.

I would suggest giving this restaurant a pass. Ordered the Jumbo hake and chips. And a side order of large calamari. Also had the creamy garlic sauce. The Jumbo hake ia not one piece but 2 small pieces. Wasn't too bad but not worth what we paid. The calamari was absolutely horrendous. Tasteless and rubbery. Tried to give some taste... More

From then on, we had fish cakes for starters - order the spicy ones if you are keen. Simply lovely. I had the Grilled Tuna - best enjoyed medium... More

Smart décor restaurant where generally they seem to be a bit run down. The fish was very fresh as they catch it themselves. The service was friendly and excellent and the price was reasonable. Not having a great wine or beer list was the only negative for the restaurant

I eat here almost on a weekly basis and always find the food to be excellent. The peri-peri prawns are a family favourite!
