The food is always good at Orca, as is the service. My book club meets here once a month as we know we can rely on the food being tasty, and reasonably priced.

Great food. The prawns are terrific, as is the pate. Consistent and with good service. Nice relaxing location, it’s pleasant to look out at the bay.
