Sit on the beach and have a swim in the morning and then have a beer and lunch at the surf club. The fish tacos are fantastic, the squid ink bun with a tuna fillet is delicious, the Fijian style fish cerviche is refreshing and tasty. These guys do fast, casual and relaxed dining in a great way!

Lady on the register didn't want to be there and needs to smile. Guy at the bar was extremely rude to my friend and daughter, unfortunately wouldn't recommend because of... More

A group of 12 of us decided to have diner here . We almost left in the first 5minutes . Nobody likes a smart barman . The meals where ok and presently nicely . Salmon was overcooked but that's easy to do . I think the staff need a lesson smiling and hospitality .

We enjoyed a good, cheap meal here. Lovely view of the beach and a great kids menu. It was very busy so make sure you book!

The Seafood Cioppino was quite nice, for entree the calamari and ceviche were ho hum, and unfortunately desert (tim tam slice and lemon tart) were inedible. Not great, I wouldn't go back.

Spent an relaxing afternoon here and enjoyed a few drinks with family and friends. Service was quality and friendly and had a nice chat to one of the bar boys. Food was also good quality and well priced.

Every Australian beach should have an eatery like this one. Walk in from the beach and order a bucket of prawns and an ice-cream sandwich for the kids. Relaxed with yummy food.
