Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Service and staff very friendly. Basic food with a very over the top price tag. Fish and chips was just a standard serve you could buy at a fish and chip shop for half the price. Fish was fresh but had not been cleaned properly....Crab was tasteless. Disappointing!More

Amazing seafood platter for 2. Fish of the day in curry sauce was also good. Would like to see more seafood options like BBQ bugs, mussels, lobster or crab. Would also like to have the option of crumbed fish but they only offer battered. Still...very good overallMore

Staff friendly and attentive mostly and the setting is wonderful. You can’t beat the location and in summer the breeze is welcome. Our fish and chips were nicely done and fresh but you need to order a side salad as this dish doesn’t come with...a salad. My mother had the chicken salad which was a horrible mess of a small amount of chicken and large cous cous. It looked nothing like a chicken salad. The interior and exterior could do with a spruce up, looking a little tired.More

Fresh fish for sure, but weird flavour combinations This is a restaurant lacking cohesion around flavour, lacks consistency in the preparation of the food and no love of the food. Lovely location, really beaut. Lovely wait staff, friendly and attentive. Host at arrival, unfriendly and...would not seat a table of three at a table for four, then seated a table for three at a table for five. This is why this is a two and not a three.More

I recently officiated and attended a friend's wedding at this venue. It was amazing from start to finish. Firstly Brittany couldn't have been more helpful with the ceremony and afterwards for the reception Adam took over and made sure everything was spot on and everyone...had a good time. The food was next level. So fresh and so much. Oysters... prawns... duck spring rolls ... Barra... beef cheeks... the list goes on. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE PLACE AND THE PEOPLE.More
