Best calamari heads we've tasted, supported by delicious chilli poppers and great service by Nollie. Seriously worth a visit.

Excellent for eating a relaxed meal. A good choice of food from sea platters to burgers (both excellent). On a jetty over looking the lagoon, so eat inside or out.

Stopped here spontaneously one night during our recent honeymoon. The first surprise was that the menu is extremely limited. We were surprised that there was only one chicken dish on the menu. If you're not a big seafood fan, this might not be the best...More

We were a group of 10 people and had a lovely dinner. Everyone had different food and all were good. Special mention to Tempura prawn and chicken snitzel. Light and clean decor with a log fire burning made it perfect for a cold autumn evening!
