I visited in the evening and had crab pate which was very yummy and ribs which were also great. Good portion sizes and good value for money. The customer service was very good. One tip, if you want to dine upstairs to get the best of the views make sure you book in advance

Slipped off the beach for a quick lunch. The prawn and crab sandwiches were excellent, a hand full of chips, side salad and a pot of tea. Perfect.

Awesome views over the bay! The food's is great - we loved their mocha frappe, can go back just for that! Outside the restaurant, you can take a dip in the sea or go for a nice long walk..

We called I for coffee whilst on a day out and the coffee was excellent. The quick efficient service most welcome as was the hot steaming mugs of fragrant coffee. Definitely worth a return visit.
