Best battered fish ever. Friendly service, a little overwhelmed with all the custumors this evening. The restaurant itself is Not very comfortable. Ideal for Take away.

Delicious fresh blue cod and crispy chips, perfect way to end the day. Service was friendly and efficient. There was a good selection on the menu to choose from but I personally think you can't beat the local Blue Cod!

The Chinese owner was very friendly while waiting for my take away. The portion was good for the price I paid as it came with fried scallops and mussels.

Really enjoyed the grilled Dory. Small place, not much to it but everyone in our group enjoyed the food they had. I was told the smoked salmon was excellent. Prices much more economical compared to surrounding restaurants.

We went to Mainly Seafood based on Trip Advisor ratings. We ordered some fish and chips with Onion Rings and prawns skewer. The food was ok, nothing great and a bit pricey compared to similar places in other parts of new zealand. The interiors are very ordinary but clean. I think their main business happens via take-away..!!

We were a bit disappointed with our sitdown meal. The room was uncomfortably cold and the food, while adequate, could have been done with a lot more flair. There are plenty of tables, but it seems that takeaways are the focus.
