We visited here a group (11) in total on Father's Day for the Sunday roast, service was excellent and so was the roast beef dinner with the home made gravy. Puddings are very nice also! High chair available and the staff are very friendly and helpful

We were looking for something fairly light and plain as we had already had a big meal at lunchtime. We explained this to the waitress (owner) and she made us exactly what we wanted - egg and chips for me and a burger on a roll for my companion. Very tasty and reasonably priced. Home-made chips would have gained them... More

Spent out final night yesterday before returning home to the UK here and can see now why we had problems bookings twice earlier in the holiday.

For a Brit run cafe I would have expected a bit better service and a friendly atmosphere. Not to be. Just wanted coffee which resulted in sour looks from the staff. Will not be going here again. Will stick to the friendly natives who always apreciate our custom.
