We visited on a rainy day but the view directly over the tidal pool & ocean was mesmerising. The meals were tasty and they had a great selection of seafood meals for kids & adults. The grilled calamari was delicious!

The Bell is all about location. It is as if you are seated in the surf. Always busy, the quality of the food is good and so is the service. A great place to spend time with friends.
