Location is great. Service friendly. Could set up some deterrent for the table hopping seagulls to assist diners. Burger ordered was large and fresh. Meal delivered quickly. Only negative was the cocktails ordered which were poor quality and inconsistent- obviously skimping on the alcohol content...More

Great fish and chips and awesome burgers. Close to the attractions which make it a nice place for a quick lunch.

Came here for fish in chips in the evening, very sub par experience. The breading on the fish was more like a chicken finger than fish. The salad was ok. Service was so-so.

Looks like it could be a decent facility for pleasant lunch meals but our experience was not all that great. First had to ask for decent seats as we were initially directed to poor area. My chicken sandwich came loaded with avocado smear which hadn't...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Food was O.K. but we were disappointed when we asked for a Coke and a Coke Zero lucky my wife, as the guy was filling the glasses noticed Pepsi behind the bar man and asked is that Coke and Coke Zero? the guy said no Pepsi and Papsi Max, this disappointed us as we did not get offered this, he just assumed he could give us a different drink than we asked for and assumed we would not notice. I did not hand him $50 of Vatu and asumed he would not notice. Respecting the paying customers it is not much to ask. We turned down the now half full glasses and my wife went elseware to buy the drinks we asked for, I am not asking you to carry a drink you choose not to carry, I am asking you to tell someone if you are substituting for a different product.
