“Seafood platter was terrible!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Old fish, rubbery prawns and well overpriced. No wonder as chef was surfing the net through lunch. Wont see us again.

“Ideal beach restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

But, the service was appalling, so slow, sometimes waiting over an hour for food to arrive, with such a captive market from the beach, they should look to improve their service. But then it is always full, so they may not need to!!!

“Tasty sunset spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Friendly staff and a super setting at the end of grotto beach. We walked from Baleens and back and enjoyed a lovely meal and sunset.

“Great seafood and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Eating on the terrace soaking up a sunset over the beach or sitting inside in the warmth by the fire, either way this place is a real treat. Staff very friendly. New owner is a happy chappy who is a delight to chat to. Seafood medley very nice as were the snails too. Chef is a champ!

“Food on the Beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

New owners who were very welcoming.Lots of good food and of course after walking on the magnificent beach,a cold beer went down really well.Only thing you need to be aware of is the wind but you eat/drink inside.
