I am travelling around new Zealand by myself and stepped into this little fish restaurant. Very friendly couple, the place has a nice vibe compared to some local pretentious high end restaurants or sports bar. This place serves a decent range of food (not just sea food) I had the fish and chips which were absolutely amazing. For pudding, I tried the banana spring rolls - equally recommend. The beer selection is good to, although bottled had enough variety to satisfy most. Highly recommended

For an entree we had the squid which was well cooked and not chewy. We had the tuna, crayfish and gurnard. All of the dishes were excellent. limited desert menu though

Otago Rabbit Ranch 2015 Red went very well with the squid and mussels which were very well cooked. Thanks for the recommendation.
