Called in here on our circuit of the island by e-bike. Excellent fish-burger, stunning views and great service included a "doggie bag" for substantial leftovers.

We had the most stunning feed of parrot fish and chips, sitting looking out at the sunset with a drink from the fishing club. Fresh, tasty and cheap with great service. Go there.

Amazing fresh fish, great portion size to not leave us feeling overfull in the heat. What a beautiful location as well, right on the ocean. Wonderful meal!

Tasty local fish (Tuna - from outside the reef!) cooked well, quickly and with good humour - And there's a great view!

We found this lovely combo by accident as we were looking for a pit stop to sit out the rain. This is two businesses that have formed a perfect pairing. The Game Fishing Club provides all day Happy Hour pricing ($5 wine $3.50 beers &...More

This old boat converted to a takeaway produces some great food. The fish we had was Marlin, so tasty it was glorious and the chips well cooked. Prices were reasonable.
