We should have read the reviews before we entered this eatery. They were ALL TRUE. Don’t bother trying this place out. Overpriced, fridged frozen seafood, table & cutleries were not up to a standard hygiene. After paying $79 seafood platter for 2, the waiter insisted...More

Went to order food on a Saturday afternoon and it wasn't open, even though it states that it is. Obviously lost a customer.

We had take away on a Sunday night. I wanted grilled fish and the only option was barramundi so that is what I ordered along with chips and a garden salad. Garden salad claimed to have lettuce, fresh herbs, tomato and cucumber. Barramundi was dry,...More

Much better than most of the reviews - and honestly there ain’t much choice for dinner in Swansea. We had the oyster bay catch which was more than adequate for two such that the additional small chips we ordered weren’t necessary. The crumbed battered whiting...More

You had a good experience , fresh fish is expensive I agree. When your a local is unfortunate and annoying to see tourist get ripped off in comparison to other seafood shops in the State.
