Absolutly Yummy!

Wonderful nautical ambiance and a warm welcoming feeling are the first things you notice about this place. My husband and I immensely enjoyed our food and are definitely going to return in the near future!

Walked in to a nice little cafe with great view! While the seals splashed in the inlet, enjoyed a yummy California Benedict with Avacado and red roasted potatoes. Good value!

Fascinating drinks. We enjoyed the "Wkik Waki Woo". Our server was an absolute delight. We had very unhurried service which allowed us to enjoy the view she answered all of our tourist questions. We ate too much but found the food to be good. We couldn't finish the huge servings so had it packaged for home.

the view here is great but the service was the slowest I have experience at a restaurant. my omelette was cooked in vegetable oil instead of butter or virgin olive oil. It was all that I could taste. The guy at the bar was very nice though.

This is an inexpensive place to have lunch over the water. We didn't stay for the night life but it gets rocking with live music.
