    Pop in for a pre-dinner drink at 5.30 pm- the staff feed George the giant Groper + the event is spectacular! Then settle in with a beautiful waterfront view for the finest, fresh seafood in town.

    If you block out the cliche reggae music then this place would be 10/10. Grab a bucket of prawns and a beer and you're set.

    George the Grouper arrives at 5pm every day for his daily feed of fish heads. Maybe best for humans to stick to the prawns and XXXX Gold.

    They think they are fancy. But very usual. Nothing special.

    Relax and sip on a cool drink, while watching all the tour boats returning from their day on the reef.

    Grab a beer at the bar before 5pm and watch them feed George the Groper, then enjoy a great seafood meal while you watch the sun set over the water.

    Staff go above and beyond. Kids love watching George being fed. Need to get there early to get a good viewing spot.

    Make sure you book, even in the off season. Great for kids (fish and crabs swimming under the jetty) and excellent food/wine.
