“Relaxing Lunch”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

I have been to the Flying Fish many times over the years and its always been very good. Recently it changed hands but the service and the food have become even better. The new menu
has a great choice and the seafood on the menu is so fresh.
They also have an excellent choice of wines at reasonable prices.
I WILL be back again & again, I just love the view over the ocean and the food.

“Nice ice cream on a hot day.”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

A nice little cove on the south coast, just next to Victor Harbour. This cafe can be quite busy on a warm day, as it was when we went. The ice creams are very nice indeed to cool you down and the size is very good as well.

In the Summer, have a dip in the bay while you are there. It is a lot calmer than the open beaches.

“Lovely Little Gem!”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

My partner and i have been here several times and it's never been disappointing! The views looking out towards the ocean are beautiful, service was great and the food always a winner. It does get very busy especially on the warmer days, as you can imagine but it's so worth while to take a trip down here even if you can't get a seat you can easily walk to the beach or find a lovely spot on the grass area! Keep up with the fantastic work Flying Fish ;)

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

Had lunch on a Saturday. Service was good, food was excellent, view magnificent. Don't expect a cheap lunch. Mains averaging around $35. Nice for a special occasion or if you feel like a splurge.

“Great location and views, ok food”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Have been many times and always enjoyed the view and turquoise waters - perhaps the food was not as good as we remember from the past but it was still enjoyable , very efficient service and a good range of quality wines at reasonable prices.
Perhaps a little expensive for the quantity - only 2 pieces of whiting with the battered fish and chips - but we were to meet local friends rather than a gourmet experience and we all went away happy.
