Besides the great breakfast, the view is also nice. There's a variety of breakfast combinations. The New York and Belgian breakfast will satisfy your hunger :)

It was a lovely place to sit and watch the boats... More

Much too my surprise there was an TripAdvisor award on the wall in this restaurant. The menu is very simple and not much on it. The food is poor and just thrown together. If it wouldn't be for tourist I doubt this place would work. On the other hand as an bar it's a nice place with beautiful view from... More

This is a good place to drink and have conversation with friends, but I would not recommend this place for food. I checked out other places where the food is less oily and they serve the food faster. We almost waited 1 hour for spring rolls to come and they were very , very oily. I give 3 starts only... More

Sensational view, very friendly staff, food was average but service was great. Plenty of variety on the menu but keep to the local knowledge of seafood etc as I had a spag Bol & it wasn't too good. Would go again. Good place for a drink at sunset

I came here between diving with Submariner Dive Center. It was a clean, cozy restaurant with a nice view of the beach. Good place for cheap drinks during happy hour. Can't complain - nice little restaurant/cafe.
