With the gradual and sustained demise of the “fish and chip” shop, this place prospers. Located on the edges of Lake Burley Griffin, this place offers good quality fresh produce. Minimalist menu but done well. Fish is fresh. Chips are crispy. Views are great and grass land to enjoy a romantic interlude or a boysy football game. What else do you need?
