We thought this was a good place to eat. I had king prawns coated in panko and coconut and they were absolutely delicious. My husband had fish and chips which he said were very good. The service was quick and friendly.

This restaurant was so good that we ate here a second time. Second time was just as good. If you order your fish battered the serving is big enough for two people to share.
