The view was outstanding, but the porkbelly i ordered was very average. I shall visit again, but shall never order porkbelly at this restaurant. My wife was very satisfied with her dish.

We dined at Dutton's Cove on the 16th of February 2019. The views of the ocean were spectacular. We had the calamari and mussels and both meals were average.

The food compliments the view. With that I believe one cannot give a better compliment. An absolute must if you visit this area.
