Two people working were very pleasant, and the portions were ready and huge but at a rather high price. Exterior has chipped paint and the tables weren't very clean, especially the outside ones.

Stopped here to break the trip and what a disappointment. It’s average (at best) food with superior prices. And then a surcharge for public holiday on top. Won’t recommend. Won’t go again.

When we called open until 7pm. Enjoyed a very nice snapper, salad and chips at a table in the window. Alternative could have been whitebait fritters.

We weren't sure if we could get to eat in as it was so busy & the weather was so bad! Toasted sandwiches & hot chips to share were ordered. Both arrived quick, one on whole grain & one white bread, but it didn't matter....More

Don't bother stopping in this crappy place! We stopped here five years ago and it was quite nice, but we were so disappointed this time around. The staff member who served us had a dirty shirt and looked like he'd just got out of bed....More

Staff were very friendly. The food is pretty ordinary and what you'd expect from a takeaway of this type and the coffee was OK. But the whole place really needs a good clean. The ceiling fan and the light fittings in the inside seating area...More
