“Reasonable but not up to the hype that is advertised”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Salmon teriyaki is great but battered fish and chips does not warrant the hype shown in all the advertising and tourist guide. Maybe I'm spoilt as Australia has such great fish and chips at places like Bermagui.

“Great fish and chips”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

We have been here twice now and never been let down. The halibut is fantastic, batter was perfect as were the chips. Its a great location and the harbour seals are great entertainment.
Highly recommended after a whale watch with eaglewing tours.
