We had a crab and king prawn salad which was fabulous. So much so that we went back a second time and had another one! The staff were friendly and efficient

Doesn't look much but a great spot and some great food. Menu doesn't look much or sell itself really but it was great and some much needed local food if you're staying in Bigbury but want to eat out and stay local. Service was excellent also which was appreciated.

Good local cafe/restaurant but need to book a table as very small. Good chef and serving staff. Also had delicious takeaway fish and chips one night!

Really nice little cafe overlooking Burgh Island & it's exclusive hotel. Delicious sandwiches served with small salad & crisps. Good selection of fillings & breads.

the staff were pleasant, the food other guests were eating looked fabulous but we only wanted a coffee and that was really disappointing. Both the cappucino and the americano had little flavour. We would still however try this cafe again for food as the view was fabulous and they might make better tea!

We are a group of 9 WI ladies who have just had a lovely lunch in this cafe with the perfect view. The food was simple, delicious and very well presented. The staff could not have been more welcoming or more helpful, and coped extremely well with the particular dietary needs of one of our party. Well done to all.... More

Just arrived back from a really lovely lunch with a group of WI ladies. Enjoyed the crab salad, view and the company. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Very good portions and value for money. One added bonus was they have free parking!

Dressed crab was a generous portion with chunky pieces of claw meat, at a reasonable price. Partner's fish and chips were good and crisp. The superb view of Burgh Island was a bonus!

Second year that we have visited, this time we were more prepared, booked a table as soon as we arrived and enjoyed excellent fish and chips with a beautiful view over Burgh Island. Service excellent, prices reasonable and food wonderful.
