Summary

“Seafood served as it should be: it couldn’t be fresher coming off the boat on the Back Beach”, wins universal acclaim for this “fun, if not particularly smart place”. A change of ownership has brought “a wider choice of fish” but thankfully no compromise on quality – and “it’s still as difficult as ever to get a table without booking 2 weeks ahead...”.

"Freshest of fresh seafood, simply prepared and served by friendly staff. Lovely location on the estuary beach but a small building so necessary to book ahead as it deservedly popular."
