We had just arrived and didnt feel like dining out, so we did take out on the waterfront. Beautiful fresh fish. Great Service and great location.

Staying in a hotel nearby and we ate here for our breakfast both mornings of our stay. Just to say the service is good, the breakfast baps are great and fill you up as they are not small. Really good food for a decent price, nothing more needed really.

My wife and I had burgers and chips for lunch and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was hot and fresh and reasonably priced given that it's a tourist destination. The serving sizes made up for the slightly higher prices.

This place was a popular place and you can even bring your filleted catch from... More

Enjoyed the fish and chips whilst sat out on the harbourside in the sunshine. Beware of seagulls. Worth a visit.

We had very fresh fish and chips here. You have to be patient and wait in the queue as this place is popular especially with tourists. The downside is you have to buy sauces except vinegar.

The negative of this meal was the disproportionate amount of chips compared to other items in the selection.
