Ordered hot food and told the wait will be 15-20 minutes. Only about 5-6 others waiting. 55 minutes later our food was ready. It was terrible. However. the fresh prawns were great. Some OH&S issues. They need to bulldoze and start again.

staff rude, food horrible, place run-down to the point the health department should be called in to shut the place down. Its could be such an awesome place right on the water, but it is not.
