Had lunch here when we first arrived without getting the local input. Big mistake. Seafood was overcooked, cold when served, and overpriced for the poor quality. We had the hake and a combination plate of prawns, fish etc. Would be nice to have hot food...More

The view of the ocean is amazing from the restaurant. The cocktails are well priced and the calamari and chips were delicious.

We were a party of seven and some of us enjoyed our meals more than others. The Beachcomber (Hake & Calamari) was outstanding. Very fresh and very generous in terms of portion size. The Chicken & Prawn Curry was also quite good. Those who tried...More

This Restaurant is situated right on the Beach with breathtaking views over the ocean. It has a typical coastal fisher town theme with decor to suit. Seafood offered and served is big portions, well priced and delicious. Staff are friendly and very helpful.

This p[lace has an amazing location right on the beach with stunning views - however they seem to make their money purely by trading on their location. They could do so much more if they upped their food game. Its OK at best - but...More
