Right on the ocean ... and great fish and chips! Good food and the service is outstanding. A really nice, very casual place.

Saw reviews for it so we went, and we were not disappointed. Batter on fish was light and flaky and the fish was moist. Will revisit next time in town!

If you want a seafood experience with atmosphere try this cafe. The chowder was wonderful and the fish and chips awesome. They make their own cocktail sauce. It's cute and casual right on the sand.

Fresh tasting fish dishes, beautifully crisp batter, lovely sauces and friendly staff. All good.

We were seated easily despite not having reserved. We all had fish or shrimp and everyone was hungry and polished off the food. The hot spicy sauce on the fish taco was delicious.

Only small gripe was use of paper plates and plastic cutlery. Shame about all that waste with no effort to recycle.
