It's not a restaurant but a seafood shop located in the grounds of, I assume, the family home. You can't beat the seafood - incredibly fresh, extremely tasty and very reasonably priced. We were on the Island for 3 nights and went for fresh supplies...More

We had seafood every second night from Rufus King - Michael and his wife were lovely people and their prices are excellent. The seafood is the best I've had in years!

Got 1.5kg of prawns - they were fresh and tasty. $33 a kilo is ok to pay when you know they are fresh and were very large compared to what you see in the shops.
