Great host and surroundings but the meal was decidedly ordinary, the web site led me to believe it would be a foody experience. It was nice safe, unimaginative food. As a good cook I can do better than this!

My daughter and I visited Beaches Restaurant on a Sunday evening when it was quiet. We had a super evening - lovely atmosphere, nice service and great local, simple, well cooked dishes. We loved the lobster! BYO a great way to drink nicer wine than you would normally in a restaurant.

This is a small restaurant that is part of Beaches B&B - only opens to non residents on a few nights but well worth making a reservation. Food is all fresh and beautifully cooked and served by the husband and wife team. It is BYOB and cash or cheque. Highly recommended.

Visited on a tasting night. 5 courses, no choices. Seafood bisque to start - OK as soup goes, but hard pressed to identify even a hint of anything marine. Next a leaf of iceberg lettuce, some cucumber and smoked salmon. The salmon was good but iceberg lettuce? I don't think so. Followed by crab and lobster mornay. Tasty, but some... More

We really enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu we ate here. The ingredients were all very fresh and we were happy to eat dishes based on quality rather than quantity. The price was fair and we were able to bring a decent bottle of wine with us rather than paying over the odds for a mediocre one. Would thoroughly recommend... More

Beaches is a lovely intimate restaurant where you can enjoy the freshest food ever! The fixed menu was well thought through and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere is calm with subtle music in the background. Service feels like you've got your own chef and maitre'd . Five courses, bring your own wine and enjoy! Beaches is not a plush restaurant,... More

We go on an (ir)regular basis to Beaches, and we are never disappointed. This gem of a restaurant serves genuine, fresh food, prepared with love and care. BYOB keeps prices reasonable, and the hospitality is second to none. Donald and Sue are dedicated hosts, no effort is too much to make you feel welcome. We'll be back soon, if only... More

Well located intimate restaurant with good food and great service, all at sensible prices. Best to book, and byo policy. Probably not ideal for children. Sea food specials. We had a very pleasant meal, not rushed, with an extensive menu.
