Had a beef burger and the mince was raw, scallops were not cooked either. Pretty disappointing after a long day skiing.

Awesome take away fish and chips. No bad oil taste here. Everything was well worth the dollars and BIG portions. No going away hungry. Friendly folks and fun atmosphere. Plus we loved the way our order was wrapped in newspaper. Thanks Boa Boa.
