I mean it. And the seafood platters and everything really. You can also buy takeaway Skink in pots as well as fresh lobster (if available). They are so friendly too and provide good oaties and decent cuppa. Excellent place to make the diversion to during a blustery beach walk to Hopetown.
(PS, after 10 years of trying, I reckon that my Skink is nearly as good!)
Will be back in July.

Well worth a visit, lovely fresh food. Recommend the Cullen Skink or Seafood platter. Saturday night buffet is meant to be popular and you must book

Went to the seafood buffet night, very large selection of seafood all of which was very tasty. Never tasted such fresh scallops!

Would recommend to all, great way to sample lots of different seafood

I use this place regularly, I find that all the food is fresh and very tasty. The staff are very polite and helpful.
The sea food is fresh from the sea using local fishing boat, the Cullen skink is to die for, absolutely brazilliant. :)
Prices are very reasonable

Went with my wife to this Café for the first time today Sunday 2nd March, it was reccomended by a friend. What a treat, home made Cullen Skink soup and 1/2 Lobster each with salad. All the fish/shellfish is caught locally and is excellent. The menu is a good mixture to cater for the tastes of most people and the prices just about right. The highlight to look forward to are the evenings when they do a sea food/shellfish Buffet.
A gem of a find
