Typical seafood/fish and chips joint. Nothing special, but not bad. Service was ok and ambiance was good, great views of harbor.

I visited this restaurant a year ago and this time round it was average to say the least. Not much to say negative or positive. Get in, eat, and leave quickly!

Ideal location overlooking the harbour, good selection food to choose from, friendly staff. You will be serenaded by a troop of African singers.
