Just loved the place, from the fresh seafood to the drinks. Fantastic views of the Atlantic ocean. Seems to be a favourite with locals.

Very good food and very good service. The serving was also good enough for the price. Would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice bite and don't want to go out.

Magnificent views over the ocean and beyond. Perfectly sheltered against windy summer evenings, majestic in winters watching the force of the ocean unleashing its power on to the Atlantic Coastline. Decor vibey, food and drinks excellent. A regular spot to visit

We ordered milk shakes but they were serves with very thin straws and only after some fighting with the thin straws... More

I just arrived in CT and needed lunch, so when this place turned up next to the street I stopped randomly. I had the buttermilk chick wrap which was soooo good!

Ok for a relaxed lunch. The salads were very good. The menu was varied and u could have anything from a full breakfast to hamburgers or eggs benedict .It is situated opposite the Ambassador Hotel alongside a very busy road so it can be noisy sitting outside.

Whaw what a negative experience. Tuna out of a can dumped on a small bed of lettuce. The tuna still had the mold of the can. After I flaked my own tuna, I found pieces of fish bones still in it. The sundries tomatoes where hard to spot (I had 4, my friend didnt calculated them). The promissed vinegrette was... More
