Love this place. An ideal spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of Wollongong CBD. Perfect for a catch up with friends whether it be a coffee or a feed. Beautiful spot as the weather warms up. Great feed, good menu selection and service was on par. Prices are average.

It is in an amazing spot on the beach which provides for great views. Food is always fresh and yummy! Price is very reasonable and you get your money's worth. Very hard to fault.

If you're into small portions, sticky tables, rude pigeon stomping waitresses, and inflated prices ... this is the place for you . Sitting on the 'deck' was nice with a great view. Be warned : the view is expensive ... won't be going again

Having given up at an alternative I met my family for a welcome escape from the rain, good heater, friendly staff and good food and coffee for late lunch
