Having recently reopened as a smaller, more compact version of its former infamous establishment, this seafood restaurant caters to both the take-away and dine-in customers. This classy (as apposed to classic) style fish’n’chip shop offered us a burger with 100% beef, cooked onion, bacon, egg, pineapple, lettuce, tomato, cheddar cheese, and tomato sauce on a sesame seed bun.

“For me this burger didn’t have a great appeal. Although it oozed “burger juices” everywhere, I found the bun somewhat dry, the onion had been overcooked and had lost its flavour, and the pineapple was overkill. The egg was my highlight. It’s early days so I would expect there would be some improvements to come.”
“The beef had been packed too tight, which resulted in it crumbling from the first bite. This did not make it an easy meal to eat. The beef was also a little burnt making it dry, however the oozing egg made up for it. Very friendly service and considering they’d only been open for 3 days I can only imagine it will get better over time.”
“For a place that has been open for under a week I can’t say it was all that bad. However, there were a few things I would refine: the pattie needed more seasoning, the bun felt like it came from a supermarket bakery and the onion was over cooked (raw red onion would have sufficed in my opinion). Would I go back? I’d say give it a month. Chips were a plus.”
“This place has a lot going for it including the right environment, staff and reputation. But in the end my highlights were everything but the burger.”
