We went for lunch. We ordered the $52 seafood platter. The food was ok. Got an array of seafood on the plate, including prawns, calamari, oysters and octopus. There was salad and chips on the side. The seafood was fresh, except the octopus was over...More

I rarely write bad reviews on Trip Advisor. But for this place, I feel like I have a public duty to do so. You'd think that with all the claims of 'best fish and chips this side of wherever...', the food would be at least...More

Good value for money and beautifully cooked - the fish'n'chips was clean on the palate - no greasy after taste. The marina view is great as it is right on the wharf.
