Not happy with the service

Made a visit to this restaurant as its in a great location looking out west over the beach/sea and a great view up the bay. We wasn't disappointed either, great view of the sun setting as we enjoyed our meal. We didn't have a reservation, but it was quite busy when we left so would probably wise to. Good selection...

The views are very good. The menu is varied and interesting. The food is well prepared. The staff are friendly and efficient. Prices are OK. Definitely worth trying. We went for an evening meal. Were a little unsure before we entered the restaurant, was it really just a beach cafe? Once inside we were happy with the overall ambience. Good... More

Super little restaurant. Try the daily menu which is fanatstic value for money. Don't leave it too late to go though as it fills very quickly. All the staff are very accomadating as long as you give their language a try.

We've been eating here for the past 7 years. A wonderful place to watch the sun set from the terrasse. The food is simple and fresh and almost always nicely cooked. We've always found the service friendly and welcoming (although we miss the bald guy who left a year ago) . Would highly recommend it after a long walk on... More
