Well placed on the beach, this Cafe has great views looking out to the passage, the staff were quick and efficient and the time taken to cook my order was fair. The quality was really good and there was plenty for all in the family pack. If you can get a seat on the tables or grass across the road... More

Had lunch here today at the recommendation of a local. Cafe is across the road from the beach so nice easy access for holidaymakers. Cafe is just standard cafe but with a nice relaxed beachy atmosphere which suits it to a tee. Staff were all super friendly and served us within seconds. A staff member who looked like a manager...

We were there on locals night and while we weren't entitled to the locals discount, the vibe was great. The mussels and drinks couldn't be faulted. The staff even commented that they'd be happy to add chilli to the dish on our request next time we came. We would definitely go back. It looked to be child-friendly too!

Ate here on a Monday night food was good especially the homecooked chips. Only problem being that those sitting at the next table ate at half price simply because they were from the local area. Food doesn't taste quite as good when u feel you're being ripped off

Large portions of fish, lots of chips and everything freshly cooked and very tasty. Great value for money and beautiful view while you wait.

2 pieces crumbed Cod and chips $19.90 and worth every minute of the 10 minute wait. Staff were friendly and happy to be there. Owner treated new younger server with respect and kindness when she obviously was getting a bit flustered with the sheer volume of people in front her. Will definitely be back :-D

Had takeaway fish and chips for lunch from the kiosk. Asked for crumbed cod but what we ended up with was something between crumbed and battered and it was very oily. The chips were average and the tartae sauce they charge for was awful. It's a shame considering they have such a great beach across the road where you can... More

We tried this place for breakfast. Worst breakfast in 8 months in Australia, and we breakfast out at least once a week. Greasy bacon, overcooked eggs. Eggs over easy instead of requested sunny side up. Very disappointing. Overpriced for what we received.
