Great Location with good but not outstanding food. Burger was adequate but not exceptional. Very friendly service and a fantastic view.

Always have a fantastic experience everytime we visit the cafe. The food is always superb and the staff friendly. The view is spectacular just a shame it gets so crowded in the tourist seasons.

We had a wonderful meal of scallops followed by duck breast mains. All washed down with a great bottle of merlot. We loved every minute. Superb view and surroundings and attentive staff.

Superb service, friendly staff, and a great atmosphere. This is a very popular restaurant and you can see why, the views are exceptional. We had 3 courses each, drinks and the bill was £79 which we thought was very reasonable. The mussels and steak was most definitely the best we have ever had.(all cooked to perfection).Highly recommend this lovely place.

The food is really good here but the service can vary quite widely. It is busy, which is always a good sign, but getting served can be a challenge. if you just want a drink it's probably not the best place to go. When we last visited here were no dedicated bar staff and the queue for booking food blocked... More

Hi there Peter G, Thank you for your review. We understand completely where you are coming from. By day as all orders are taken at the bar and we make all drinks and bring them over to you, we have to make sure those people in the queue ordering food and drink get their drinks just as quickly as those...

Recently celebrated my 40th Birthday at the café and what an amazing night! The organisation of the staff before and during the night was superb. Food was great, service was spot on and all the staff were really nice. It was everything I hoped it would be. Many thanks Gylly!

Had been looking forward to trying here for a long time! Came down once last year (without booking) and It was full so was pleased to see a couple of free tables today! Arrived at the cafe at 1:50 with a friend and then waited for our friend with her newborn twins to arrive. We ordered at 14:08 (says our... More

Very good location right on the beach with lovely views, The menu had a very good selection of food and the specials board had a range of locally sourced items. We sat inside but the outside seating in warmer months would be lovely. The food took a little while but you are made aware of this as it is all... More
