Selection of seafood dishes is fantastic - hubby and I shared a platter of seafood and accompanying vegetables/salads ($NZ42) and we couldn't finish it all. Great value for money - and children well catered for as well. Will dine here again on a return visit...More

Visited September 28. Had a quiet beer and fish and chips. Thought the snack was very pricey for what is was. A nice setting though
