I've been here for lunch a couple of times and it's been pretty good! The menu is always quite exciting! Fish finger sandwich was epic and the mussels were pretty good. It's not cheap though, but then it isn't expensive so a good place for a nice lunch out.

Hadn't been here for a while due to the not so good food and terrible service so was really surprised to see how much it has changed - my meal was fantastic and really tasty and the service was excellent - lovely staff and food came out in no time at all considering how busy it was.

Great food (huge portions for kids) and nice view. Dogs can sit outside overlooking the beach. They have a barbecue each evening with fish and meat selections.

I LOVE this cafe. The food is to die for, the service is generally friendly and generally speedy. The panoramic views of the beech are wonderful and a pleasure to enjoy while devouring the Gylly burger.

I've not actually eaten here but I bring a lady that I care for with her dog for coffee fairly often, coffee is lovely, cake portions are massive and service is always great. Prices are fair for the setting but are on the higher side so wouldn't advise if you're on a budget but lovely for a treat. Haven't eaten... More

Went inside for a snack, lovely views, too hot for outside, had a Chelsea style bun,very tasty and pot of tea, service was quick and friendly. A cut above the usual beach cafe! You order at bar and staff bring order to you

They had limited offerings and obviously wanted us to leave. Very disappointing. I haven't had a meal there because the few times we have visited there has been something or other we haven't liked.
