This is a great place and we found it to be fantastic value. We ordered a pizza and salad to share whilst my daughter had the kids meal (2 slices of her choice of pizza served with chips, drink and ice cream). The pizza base are not the traditional thin bases but not too thick or doughy and the meat... More

Right on the water front at the Marina the location is perfect! Suitably priced for the quality of the food and the location. Very very busy café so be sure to leave waiting time in your plans.. u cant book. Staff are super friendly with nothing too much trouble. The pizzas are devine!

The food was good and the setting lovely but the staff spent more time chatting to each other than serving. In one case a request for a beer was just met with " your not at my table" look and never came.

We had a great lunch here on the last day with the best pizza on the island. Great service and quirky flavours with lovely views.

My partner and I stopped in for lunch. We ordered the salmon pizza with a couple of side salads. The food was great and it matched the views over the water and the general atmosphere of the place. We came back again for lunch a few days later. Great service. We had a bags with us as we were killing... More

We ordered pizza. The husband loved his, mine was not at all good. So a very mixed experience and a pretty pricey crap pizza for my dinner.

We ate dinner at this cafe while on the island. We shared a pizza and salad. Reasonably priced in the $30 range for 12" pizza. We ate the Mediterranean pizza which was very fresh and full of flavour. Washed down with a cold James Squire Pale Ale while sitting on the deck overlooking the marina. Just great. Highly recommend eating... More

Went twice after having a good experience the first time. Second time around not so good. Ok for pizza but be wary of what you order off the main dish menu. Example being Souvlaki Chicken, isn't what you think it is. Souvlaki whenever I have it is generally charcoaled, this was braised and fatty chicken. Bordering disgusting. For $23.00 it... More

On our last night, we decided to go out for pizza. When we arrived we were told the pizza oven was broken. Lucky us! The beef and the lamb were the most beautifully cooked things we ate our whole trip. I was very disappointed to find out they don't have a dessert menu! With food as good as it is,... More
