We did this as part of a tour group. It's extremely basic, a very very small tour (self guided) on a catwalk above the processing plant. There's really not much to see. The food seemed pretty basic, though we did not partake in the lobster...More

This was a rare gem in Cervantes. Although the service wasn't great, it was far better than the non existent service in most other businesses in town. The tour was interesting, and the cost expected in a country town. The grilled garlic butter lobster were...More

Came here hoping for a lobster fiesta but what you see isnt what you get. Factory tour took 15+mins, very educational albeit expensive. The guided tour was really a handheld listening device with your language selection. We met a very friendly staff letting us hold...More
