“Much more than just a café/restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Visiting the Driftwood café restaurant whether for just a coffee or a meal, is always a pleasure and inevitably brightens up a dull day; of which there have been far too many of late. My family moved into the area several years ago and my wife and I make a point of dropping in two or three times a week, either on our own or to meet up with friends. The food has always been good and the recent refit of the kitchen has enabled the choices on the menu to be varied and expanded. Clearly the owners have taken great care to employ good staff. There's always a cheery welcome even when, on busy days, everyone is under pressure. To sum up; good quality food, realistically priced, friendly staff, and probably one of the best views in the area.

“Beach Find of the year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

A great sea side beach cafe with a difference. Local sourced, well prepared snacks and meals - the place is buzzing even on cold winter days when nobody wants to be near the beach let alone on it. At Blue Anchor with views straight out to sea.

“Not as good as usual”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Must say, the food is too pricey for a cafe, and not that good to rave about. It's ok. The staff pay no attention to any of the customers, unless your food is being brought out to you. Will not check back to see if everything is ok and to your taste with what you ordered. Will give it credit due to location, as its right off the beach, with a great view. But think the staff need to be trained to know what customer service is.
