Set between two of the south side’s prime historical sites is this first-rate little fish cafe and market. Upstairs is the indoor-outdoor eatery serving everything from the standard fish and chips to the gourmet specialties such as dukkah crusted barramundi swordfish souvlaki, or a reef and beef involving wagyu rump, scallops, prawns and calamari.
Downstairs adjacent to the car park is the little fish market where customers can choose and tong their own seafood from the burstingly fresh selection.
And the freshness of the produce is reflected in the dishes served in the eatery upstairs, where the meals are both delicious and beautifully presented.
For those so inclined they serve Merlo coffee and, until 11am a big breakfast with not a marine creature in sight.
