“Basic but nice!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

This little place is very casual but lovely, it's on the beach so you can take in the view while you enjoy lovely fresh fish!
Watch out for the cat, he is very friendly and loves a pat but he is also quite sneaky and quick......I think a few people may have lost their lunch to him!

“good fish and chips”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

good reasonably priced fish and chips. You can get beers from the club next door for $3 during happy hour (3-6 I think).

View is nice over the ocean

“Whale sighting”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Small place but great view. Fish and chip was so-so but there were lots of roosters and chicken by the table that we were sitting at. And I mean lots, as in about 25 walking around trying to get food from you. There was also a cat that literally sat next to us by the table and tried to grab our food. Im allergic to cats so I instantly started sneezing and getting the sniffles. Despite all of that, we were actually able to spot a whale right by the reef while eating and having our food. They also charge for ketchup and tartar sauce just FYI for those who want to try this place. Its in the back, a little hidden but theres signs everywhere. I do like the concept of a ship for their ordering area. Overall better view than the food but worth to check out.

“Quick, easy and delicious.”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Super fresh fish served from a cute boat outside the local fishing club. You can eat there whilst overlooking the beach or take away with you. The fish burger was my favourite!

“excellent,”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

very good food, a lovely spot to dine in right beside the lagoon and within walking distance of Muri Beach, the fish was moist and the batter to die for
