This "famous"seafood cafe is a tourist trap. Overpriced food and NO EFTPOS! Who does that in 2017.What a shame this a blight on the wonderful Port Stephens. Terrible and dirty outdoor furniture. Don't ask for their advertised deal of a dozen oysters for $10 as miraculously it's constantly not available -sold out??? We have never met anyone who has received... More

We ordered a sea food platter expecting a nice lunch. It really was terrible. The chips were tasteless, we added chicken salt, it made no difference, we added salt, the result was the same. The salad had seen better days and apart from the 6 prawns everything else was overcooked. The six oysters were minute. We paid nearly $70.00 &... 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 average, but no. I had chips and squid. The chips were ordinary but edible. The...

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.

This place has some good reviews so we thought why not try it out. We were so disappointed with the quality of the food and for the rest of the day and night we kept on tasting it!!!!!!! The batter was over cooked and greasy, the chips had no taste at all no matter how much salt and chicken salt... More

We thought would have a nice Lunch. Ordered the BBQ Grill platter, a piece of Grilled Atlantic Salmon, salad and 2 Crabs Claws costed $57 that's a lot of money for takeaway fish and chips. When you are having grilled Atlantic Salmon you expect the skin to be crispy for $14.90 a piece was pretty fatty at the bottom and... More

I had the barramundi fish and chips, I was hungry and expecting big things! Unfortunately, the portion size was pretty small and the chips were a little cold and cardboard like! I think I should have gone for the traditional fish and chips as i'm not sure barramundi is the best fish to be battered and fried as it holds... More

Our party of 9 ordered fish and chips to take back to our accommodation. Was hot, crisp and delicious. Order filled promptly. We would retire here again

Went here on a Saturday night, very quiet. No other customers. $11 for 6 pieces of cocktail fish, which were cooked well. The chips is what was most disappointing- $7 for a medium, super small serve, not cooked properly- worst chips we have ever had. Sauce is $2.5!! Again very average. Terrible customer service, no recommendations- clearly not happy to... More
