Good cafe near watersports.

In the heart of QAB this busy little cafe is open at convenient times, very welcoming and knocks out simple quality snacks for the host of people who keep boats down here, use the facilities for water based fun or just walk or drive in to pass time amongst that world or just to gaze across the... read more

Very disappointing today. I think our hopes were raised by the reviews on here, but the basics weren't even in place really. This is inside the marina, so you have to go through the barriers to get into the area. Once in, it's free parking for 2 hours. The cafe is very small with I think 6 tables. It's cramped... More

Whether you want a light snack or something more substantial, this café offers an extensive menu at very reasonable prices. And with views out to sea. A little off the beaten track yet only a 15 minute walk from the city centre - or a short drive with plenty of parking available. It may only be a cafe, but it's... More

We have been eating here for some time now and look forward to eating there. The food is freshly cooked and serves one of the best breakfast's around. This is a cafe that does not pretend to be anything else but a cafe whilst keeping the standards are high. It seems the manager has a great team around him who... More

Have the full English breakfast here quite often, recently tried some other meals on the menu - all top quality. Not cheap like greasy spoons, but it's not a greasy type of place. Everything is cooked fresh, although this does mean 20 minute wait for your order.

Popped back in a year later as we stayed a night at the marina to find everything just as lovely as before! Can recommend the mushrooms on toast for breakfast, cooked in real butter.

Sound Bites Grill is my new go to place for good food, fun atmosphere, and really personalized service. The views are out of this world fantastic, and I really enjoy the lighting scheme they have in there. I was so excited to see a "Southwest Caesar Salad" on the menu. I was skeptical because my all time favorite salad was... More

Firstly, the location is excellent - right on the waterside. There is also ample free parking which is always a plus. The prices are not the cheapest but the quality of the food is excellent and the portions are very good! There is a really nice atmosphere in this quirky little cafe. It can get busy which goes to show... More
