Over priced, small portions served by staff who obviously don't enjoy their job. The fish is fresh but still dreadfully expensive. Do yourself a favour and by 2 fish and chip meals elsewhere for the price of 1 here

Very popular over the holidays. However long wait time for average food. Might be great when not in peak season. But to wait 45 minutes for average food. No thanks.

This place had a good reputation some time back but based on a recent visit I would not go again. We paid $67 for 4 small pieces of snapper and 3 serves of chips. Fish ok but chips were very ordinary.

If this is the place on the water front, that everyone raves about, believe me, it's not worth it, dreadful fush n chups & lousy supermkt service. Even the Aoili was terrible. Didn't even offer a crumbed option. For a healthier choice. I will never...More
