This was to be a simple business light lunch. From the greeting at the entrance to the goodbye at the end, this was an excellent experience. The service was fast, efficient , polite and unobtrusive. The manager was present the whole time ensuring that all...More

I had lunch with the family at the Fishmonger because my previous meal a month ago was excellent. Not today though. Service was slow and the food average. Even the chips were terrible and the prawns did not have nice flavour. I don't mind paying...More

The expectation set by the menu and the prices were not met by the experience. Indifferent service, less than perfect preparation - at this level one at least expect the fillet of fish properly pin boned and the sides dishes serves warm. They certainly do...More
