“Great spot for fish & chips”

We had dinner here on a recent visit to the island and were quite impressed with our meal. We had a table on the balcony which has lovely views down over Oneroa Bay. We had planned to take our fish and chips away but couldn't resist eating them on the balcony with a beer! The service was great, lovely friendly staff; and the food was really good - fish, chips, calamari and potato fritters, all very delicious. The sauces were all small packages which wasn't great but they did have bottles of vinegar which is a must for an English person like myself! Overall great experience.

We stopped here for a quick lunch. It's a small restaurant and most tables are outdoors. Fish and chips served in newspaper - very tasty and reasonably priced. We also had some cider which was also good. View is very nice and it was a lovely day. Seating is limited and not the most comfy, which is the reason this is a 4 and not a 5.

Great location and very fair prices. The sauces are all extra and small portions. The man working the counter was also making the food so that was impressive! The outdoor seating has a great view. Fast service. All food comes wrapped in paper.

Fantastic fish and chips, served in paper which you either take away or eat at the limited number of tables available. Many of the tables are outdoors so not sure what they do on a rainy day but in the sunshine, wonderful to sit and enjoy your meal with lovely views. Portions of chips are huge and fish is very well cooked. Would have given 5 but seating is limited so may have to wait for a table; food cooked to order so be prepared to wait at busy times. Basic seating/tables but the food and views make up for the cafe atmosphere.
