We were looking for F&C so we could picnic overlooking the sea. We asked a couple of locals the best place in town for F&C - they werent kidding - it was great. Huge portions - we struggled - and the prices were really good. The food wasnt greasy or fatty. Well recommended

We had a take away meal, best fish and chips. The fish what can I say, really well cooked and the chips were great, as they were done in nice clean oil. Calamari were tender. The prices were on a par with other places.

Went in today to order a meal. Took ages to be acknowledged. I asked if the shop took credit (i.e. credit card). The man said i dont give freebies!!!! No cash no fish. I said actually I meant do you have eftpos and walked out. Customer service at its finest.

We ordered fish, chips, potato scollops, calamari, prawn cutlets, and fish bites. We were all delighted. Best prawn cutlets I have ever tasted and large calamari cooked to perfection- very food everything else. Highly recommend for fish and chips.

Fabulous burgers - this holiday season caught them unawares and they weren't coping with all the tourists and were under staffed - so wait times at times were long and service was friendly but very stressed. Don't let this turn you off though The food once you get it is awesome !
