Good and reliable place to get fresh local fish. If you get a whole fish they will clean off the scales and things which is useful. The wraps are good for a lunch time feed too.

Thanks for your review. What wonderful locals we have in recommending us to you. Kingfish is a local farmed fish and fast becoming a 'must' for visitors to try particularly when the famous Bluefin Tuna is out of season. So glad that you enjoyed this.

We brought the KG whiting and prawns & calamari for over $50. The prawns/calamari cooked in oil and covered in salt & pepper covering killed the flavour of fresh sea food. A tourist trap for cooked food.More
