A lot of the food items are more specialty and less common so we had to ask questions about them... read more

Stopped in for Breakfast with friends. Always a treat. We have eaten at the View 10 times over the years, different times of year and different times of day. Never left without a smile on our faces.

My vegetarian options were limited but tasty (soup, salad, pasta option). My peers chose seafood --crab cakes & scallops-- and they said it was well made and worth the trip. The food's appearance was exquisite overall (and the beverage options were good too.) The service was respectful and nice, although a bit slow. The ambiance was romantic and peaceful (well,... More

Old world charm and ambiance; very comfortable. Food is outstanding. We had a variety of seafood and meats cooked to perfection. Desserts are a standout - especially the peanut butter shortbread with pralines in a chocolate sauce - a meal in itself!

We went with another couple and took them here for breakfast and had the buffet and requested the flapjacks so they could try them. They are light, airy and not to be missed! I have the recipe from the kitchen and have... More

Toby as well as all the other staff was very welcoming and helpful with choices etc. and made us feel wonderful. The food was bar none, the best. We were lucky enough to have the porch area to...
