The Sea Gypsy Cafe is one of the most unique places that you will ever visit. We are situated on the water our oysters are hanging from a pole alive in the sea.

Good food - great location

Stranded on a sunday early afternoon, it is the only place which we found for our lunch. It was a nice surprise, huge portions, well priced, the calamari & chips of the child was a huge portion and all of us adults had a few samples. Also the dessert was very nice! Very nice waitress as well!

Perfect setting for a harbour restaurant with great seafood. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant even stayed open later just to accommodate us for which we were very grateful.

We had a good meal of Butterfish with lovely local wine and good draught beer. It was evening and dark when we went making for a lovely atmosphere as it's lit primarily with candles and oil lamps. It's a large version of an old fisherman shack complete with graffiti'd tables, benches, woodwork, netting draped around, open kitchen, and, for the... More
