Must try the crayfish, but fair warning for the price. the food was delicious, finger licking good, there was a bit of a line, and challenge to find parking slots during busy hours. Mind you, they run out of stock quick so make sure you come in for lunch early!

Got to try local, fresh crayfish and other seafood from this food stand right by the water. Wonderful foodie experience!

We stopped over to have our lunch before going for the whale watching. The blue cod and scallop are really fresh, amazing to go with the rice.
We had our meals outdoor. It’s a pity that the weather is too cold, the food gets cold too quickly. Best to pack and eat indoor.

I ordered crayfish but it's under my estimated. It's not fresh. No matter the waitress are helpful and serve quickly. If you haven't time you can sit and see the ocean view with seafood dishes. But i don't choose if i have more time

This roadside cafe served up freshly cooked seafood from the grill. We had the whitebait fritter and grilled fish sandwich. Served on fresh bread although others had rice and salad. Definitely worth a stop if you are driving to Point Kean
