Restaurant
“A casual, waterside fish nook, overflowing with fish fiends and brimming with fish and chips, fishy salads (warm octopus with yoghurt dressing) and fish burgers. The eponymous ‘Fish Frenzy’ ($21) delivers a little bit of everything. Quality can be inconsistent, but good staff and buzzy harbourside vibes compensate. No bookings.”
