Well priced food

We ate here twice, food was quite good for a club, went to eat here on the Saturday night but gave up as it was so crowded and there were lots of children.

The surf club is located overlooking the beach. Great deals on meals during the week. Breakfast . coffee or just drop in for a quiet drink. Entertainment on weekends.

You come here more for the views and atmosphere than the food. Almost on top of the beach, great aspect and friendly atmosphere - the food can be expensive by comparison to normal surf clubs but you tend to ignore it and just enjoy the beach and friend's company.

The atmosphere was nice but the food took a long time to come out and was dry and chewy. The meals did have some really nice flavours but were overcooked and the salad was very ordinary. For the price they charge you would expect better.

One of the worst experiences and meals ever. This was the first time we had eaten here. It started well because we were given a quiet table that we asked for and unlike some clubs there is table service available. From there it was downhill all the way. We learned too late (by listening to another waitress at another table)... More

Visited the surf club with friends and this was our first visit it has great ambiance with great views of the sea food was delicious and the steak and curry may be not the best we have had but it was OK my salmon was great. Overall a good night out.

It is Sunday night, not my usual choice to eat out but they cancelled the Sat night dining to accommodate a surf club do. I ordered a med-to well done 200g eye fillet.

We had dinner here on a Saturday night. food was OK, steak and seafood prevail. I ordered fish and it came whole and with not a lot of meat on the fish. My own fault as I usually pick a filleted fish. The place was very noisy but the views are alway great as you are looking out on the... More
