We both had the seafood / fish platter (one breaded & one grilled) and were very impressed. We took our wine and were provided with ice, cooler and glasses even though we were not charged corkage which is a nice touch.

Fish is their speciality and they know how to do it properly. Great atmosphere and service. Ask for the daily speciality. They also do wonderful takeaways.

ALL their fish dishes is amazing, my favorite is their Gurnet or Baby Kingklip. They make the most divine crispy chips. The atmosphere is very relaxed and what is nice is that you can bring your own wine and NO corkage!!!
