Coming from the UK we like our fish and chips. The fish and chips here were first class and their advice on the portion of chips is worth taking note. Plenty for the 2 of us on 1 1/2 portions. Very reasonable and we sat and ate them out of paper overlooking the harbour.

Fish and chips were good and freshly fried to order but to be honest we've had a lot better in various places .

A good meal - we shared one between the 2 of us and had enough. We enjoyed eating across the road by the wharf.

The seafood here was fresh daily! The portions were large especially the chips. The scallops and crab sticks were very tasty. Very little room to eat at the restaurant but the beach is close.

I got the meal deal with fish, a scallop, chips and a couple of mussels. Apart from the mussels it was really nice, cooked in good oil.

Prices seemed reasonable and I was hanking for fish and chips (something about the seaside always does that to me) I didn't really want to go in a fancy restaurant as I was basically in my beach gear so vinnies was the perfect spot! We are at the tables just outside for convenience! The portion was good and filled us... More

Having read a mixed bag of reviews didn't know what to expect. We phoned through an order for 6 people, and it was ready just about by the time we walked down to collect. Picked the Dory and happy to say it was excellent. Great batter too (UK style!). 4 scoops between 6 was far too many - will be... More
