Beautiful spot for a wine!

Jules and the team have always provided quick service with a smile. The cafe is right on the corner opposite the beach so lovely views any time of the day. Would definitely recommend stopping for breakfast, or wine and snack :)

We recently visited this cafe during a weekday evening and were very lucky to get a table as the place was full and humming. The menu and food was excellent and the service outstanding given just how busy they were. Will be going back, thats for sure

We enjoyed breakfast here on the morning we awaited our ferry. Coffee and breakfast food were good and service was fine as the place was not too busy when we were in.

Excruciatingly slow service but good food –I think the kitchen just could not cope. Was with a friend who had chosen the place too, was obviously known there, and embarrassed.....

Once again we had excellent fish and with Moa beer it made for a good evening. The only drawback is that when busy the staff do not appear to always spot who is waiting to order. Also be prepared to wait a while for your food as it is freshly cooked and woth waiting for.

Loved the food, the view over the harbour, the service and the music (oldies). Even the seagulls were polite enough not to approach tables until people had left.

We stopped by mid week, around 4pm or so in the afternoon, so no worries regarding any dining rush. We noticed most of the outdoor tables had "reserved" signs, but a quick question to a server indicated those were for a later dinner reservation, so they were happy to have us sit there beforehand, as we were only planning a...

I have visited the Sea Breeze three times to eat in the past year. The food here is excellent and punches well above it's weight, the plating and presentation being excellent and on par with anything from the big city.
