We love The Lime Crab, and are fortunate to live just down the coast from them. We have had the calamari, fish and chips, scallops and on my last visit chilli, and it was good, lots of flavour and heat. If the dolphins are in...More

Being in the harbour we fancied fish and chips however fried calamari sounded even better! Unfortunately, frozen calamari rings came straight out of the bag. They were very tasty but not fresh.
