What a good decision for a fresh,delicious,inexpensive seafood lunch. The fish Chowder had a subtle mouthfilling impact that called for more. How quickly the Bowl emptied. The Whitebait was crisp and delicious. Just right. Brought back happy... More

A great beachside cafe. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. There were many fresh seafood options on the menu plus other choices for those who don't like fish. The food was delicious!

What a spot! First time here but won't be the last. Gorgeous view to the surf beach, super food ( Niçoise salad with SA sardines, and a Super Bowl of fish, prawns and scallops. Yum. ) Realestate but terrific service. We will go back.

Seriously you guys really need to ask yourselves a key question - do you want to be in hospitality? If yes, then greet your customers with some respect. If no, then get the out of this game and let someone who wants to give good service a go. Every time I have been here I am made to feel like... More

We more or less stumbled across this kiosk whilst sightseeing and saw that it was open for Friday dinner. The specials menu looked good and so we stayed. Nothing seemed too much trouble despite us not having a booking and them being busy. Hubby had swordfish and I had mulloway - both were completely spectacular, beautifully presented, delicious and presented... More

Nestled in the dunes at the end of the car park at Goolwa Beach Great coffee anytime! Good for casual eats, ice creams etc to take away or sit in and enjoy local produce such as Coorong Mullet, baguettes, salads and specials! I had lunch here lovely fresh fish n chips and a glass of wine!
