Most reviews here seem to be about evening dining at the apparently very good Bayviews Restaurant, but our review is about a casual "fish/chip" lunch at the downstairs Fish Frenzy. We visited on a cold day when inside was full, but outside virtually empty. Rather than being welcomed on entering, we were given a menu and quite aggressively told that we should go back out until we had decided what we wanted to order, then come back in and order. While we understand the desire to stop people cluttering up the service areas in an already full indoor space, a request to go back out into the cold wind could certainly have been delivered with greater politeness and empathy. So, our visit did not get off to a good start and this was not helped by the table we chose outside being pretty grubby both on the table top and underneath. The only saving grace for Fish Frenzy was the food. It was excellent. So full marks to the kitchen staff, but customer service retraining of at least some of the front of house staff will hopefully avoid further reviews like this that detract from what seems to be a generally well regarded diner.

The views, the food, the service and the menu selection make this a fabulous place to stop in at any time of the day.
There is an extensive beverage menu including local ciders, beers and wines.
A perfect place for a fresh and delicious meal.

An early dinner following a long day touring the Tassie west coast. A Caesar salad with crumberd scallops for the child bride and salmon with salad for myself. The meal was cooked perfectly and arrived very quickly. The restaurants location is right on the beach and a short walk from accommodation. The vernue also had a good selection of beverages for the weary traveller.

Meals were good and service quick. Good range of meals and informal setting. Does get crowded and can be a bit confusing what to do if you are new to the place.

Great location on the beach at Burnie. Menu has a good variety of choices. Service is quick and friendly, and the menu is really good value for money. The fish and chips takeaway or eat in is great value, the coffee is not so great but they have a nice range of teas.
