I've travelled the world sampling coffee. The coffee I had here was average at best.
After the 'Fair Go' wine bottle incident I am totally boycotting this establishment.

Good presentation, great service and a damn good cuppa coffee!!! Hot drinks come with chocolate fish on the side (I guess it matches the name) which are a nice touch too.

Haven't been there for years -- but I still remember the awesome "school of fish" art (all made of metal!) on one wall.
