Fish and chips are an absolute winner. Calamari, beer, wine, the whole experience is added to by the beautiful setting if bay and mountains. Delicious just like you expect when you treat yourself to fish and chips.

This was an interesting restaurant. The rooms were set up based on historical shipwrecks in the area. They had all sorts of artifacts. Interesting local beers. The kinclip fish meal was great.
