A weekend away found us dining for lunch at The Flying Fish Cafe at 1 The Foreshore, Horseshoe Bay, Port Elliott. It's a quaint little place by the seaside in a bay with such character and a beach vibe ambience. One half of the place is a takeaway style cafe and next door is the more formal dining area. We had the pleasure of dining in the cafe takeaway area.
We all ordered the Mixed Seafood Plate which consisted of a Coopers Pale Ale Battered Garfish, 3 Crumbed Prawns and 2 Crumbed Squid Rings with Chips for just over $15.00. The chips were of a medium thick cut and full of crunch. The fish, although a bit on the small side, was delicious. The batter was perfectly balanced with a hint of Coopers Pale Ale yet it was not too thick so you could enjoy the succulent and soft fish.
The prawns were also delicious; they had the same lovely batter and were tender and succulent inside. The squid rings were well cooked too being soft and tender as squid should be.
For a nice leisurely day out by the beachside, The Flying Fish Cafe is a lovely place for a casual lunch of fish and chips. It has all the elements of location, nice food and ambience. You can't ask for much more of a takeaway place.
(VP) Very Palatable
