Wow I enjoyed a Choc Mousse which taste better than Woolworth’s’. It melted in my mouth and ate it so slowly. Yummy. We loved the outside sitting looking out over the boat shed. Place with good vibes and friendly staff. We weren’t hungry at the...More

We went New Years day at 12 o'clock, and the place was heaving. But they still managed to get to our order in 45 minutes, and it was absolutely delicious. Fresh fish, fabulous squid, good chips. My only bug bear is that they didn't salt...More
