Nice restaurant near Pine Cliffs

A great little place to go if you are staying at Pine Cliffs. There is inside and outside seating available. We sat outside surrounded by beautiful flowering vines. The service was good and the food very tasty. We would return again.

Often eat here a few times whilst on holiday as it is about 500m from Pine Cliffs. The owner is very accommodating and this is a great place to eat as a family or couple. The piri piri prawns are fantastic and usually has us fighting over who gets the last one. A variety of fish is available and we... More

Really looked forward to going to a fish restaurant. I choose my fish and it was taken away to be cooked. It was over cooked,dry and lacked any seasoning. It was served with boiled potatoes and undercooked veg. Sorry not what I expected

We only ate lunch at this restaurant but as it was the nearest one to our hotel decided to give it a try. The service was fantastic and the quality and choice was above average. We had fish and you could not fault the freshness. We would go again if ever in the area.

The cold crab pate went perfectly with the garlic bread, the fried garlic prawns couldn't be faulted but vegetarian spaghetti was average, this was expected as it is a restaurant that specialises in seafood.

There is so much to recommend this place particularly if you are a seafood fan. We had the bisque to start which was very tasty and had some surprise prawns in the bottom. We followed that with the seafood platter for 2. Half a dozen oysters followed by a bowl of mussels and clams and then the salver of lobster,... More

Quite a large restaurant with friendly staff. The fried prawns in garlic sauce made a wonderful starter to share. Grilled fish was also very decent, with choice of turbot, sea bass, golden bream, stone bass etc. Service was friendly but could be a little erratic e.g. the produced the wrong potatoes & only returned with the right ones when the...

Discovered this little gem of a restaurant last year with my mum. We come every year and so glad we returned. Staff are simply amazing and the food was better than we remembered. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. We will be returning again before we have to return back home.

Stopped off here for lunch one afternoon during a recent stay. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Initially only wanted a coffee but the seafood on offer seemed too tempting. I had 4 of the biggest prawns I have ever seen cooked on the barbecue with mixed vegetables. The tasty food and welcoming staff mean I will definitely be... More
