Great food, great wine and good prices. What more do you need. All fresh fish and kitchen on view. Best of all we could walk from our lodge in 5 mins.

Relaxed vibe. Good service with a very friendly waiter. Sushi was delicious. The hake was amazing, large portions of juicy fresh fish, excellent either grilled or fried. The fresh oysters were also very good and reasonably priced.

Food was delicious but expensive for this part of the world and portions were small. Unfortunately the waiters are very willing but poorly trained. Management stand around doing nothing.

One of the very few open lunch places in Saint Francis Bay in October. Very simple. Very friendly. Great fresh fish. Also 1 kg Eishbein (!) and 1 kg pork. Fabulous sushi and sashimi. And really affordable.

We were a large group of 12 that went out for dinner. We were attended to well by the waiters, and our food was good. Everyone seemed very happy with their orders. The grilled calamari tubes come highly recommended.

We went to Christy's for dinner on a weeknight out of season. The staff were welcoming and the fish was fresh and delicious. Service was fantastic. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting fresh fish in st francis. We even went back for lunch 2 days later.

When we go to St Francis Bay we make sure that we visit Christies Catch at least once during our stay. This time the visit was as rewarding as ever. The line fish (yellow tail) was fresh and wonderfully prepared in a lemon butter sauce and the portion was generous. We both had the salad as side dish and rounded... More
