We had a most delicious meal at Greenbacks. The Kingfish was the best fish I had ever eaten. Lemon tart delicious. Thoroughly recommend.

Greenback is only open one or two nights per week but provides exquisite food at its fish fry with the nicest range of salads available and melt in the mouth fish served in two styles, one for entree and the other for main. The kingfish served as main was in a very light tempura batter that was amazing to savour.

If you are looking for freshly caught fish, this is the restaurant to book into. Menu is limited but brilliant tempura battered fish and amazing sushimi. Large shared tables or smaller foursomes.

A limited menu but of excellent quality. Not open every night. Surprised that coffee/tea wasn't available at the end of the meal

The Tempura battered fish also superb. The best. The only thing I believe that could be an improvement would be a decent slab of Daves kingfish just... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The fish and chips were piping hot and well cooked, and the bowl of salad was more than we could manage. I love desserts and the Lemon Curd Tart was delicious. Service was good too!
