We had fried hake, kingklip and a combo platter. Good fish, average fries. Plates are really big. Friendly service. Good place for seafood lunch but don't expect anything spectacular.

This small little fish and chip shop is very good for some quick dinner. Isn't the place to have a full on sit down meal but is great for a dinner.
