“Pleasant evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We visited the restaurant last week, a group of 8, a nice table overlooking the beach, waiting staff attentive without being over the top. Service was a little slow but it was explained after the meal that one of the chefs was off sick, perhaps prior warning when we sat down would have been better in hindsight. The meals were all well cooked and no one had any complaints about the quality, price was about right for a hotel, not cheap but reasonable value. Those who review saying such things like "very crossroads motelish" should really take the time to experience the food, the décor is bright and the public areas very clean, we would go back again.

“Good Food, good service, great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

I’ve been taking lunch here with my mother once or twice a month for about 1½ years and have never been disappointed. Their mixed grill, in particular, is more sensible (both price and size) than the over-the top offerings so common nowadays, and all beautifully cooked. What really makes his restaurant though, is the combination of the great tasting food, pleasant and attentive service, good atmosphere and lovely sea views all in one place.

“Comfy and peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Popped in with a friend to do some work and grab breakfast/brunch, we had coffees and a bacon sarnie! food was ok, coffee was nice (reasonably priced), and presented lovely, offered glasses of water and service was good. Sofa's were comfy and the free WiFi was great. Would definately consider going back for lunch or for an evening meal.
