Sea Cow is a small restaurant that certainly bats above its weight. It is very casual - one orders at the counter and it is cash only. We were a group of 4 and each of us had an excellent meal. I had grilled lemon...More

I loved eating here, we had the most amazing creamy oysters before gorgeous fish, chips and salad. So much choice of lovely fish. I love it that you can bring your own wine, sit inside or out and enjoy a local vibe.

A great casual and friendly spot with outdoor seating (and BYO)! An always reliable menu where the calamari is a must. Great for catch ups for couples, family and friends.

Stopped off here for dinner after checking their opening hours on the door for a public holiday earlier in the day. I'd been looking forward to fish and chips with a nice glass of white all afternoon - and it did not disappoint, although in...More
