Went for breakfast where the crowd is of an older age. It's just fine. The view of the beach is nice and there are lots of windows along both sides of the restaurant to enjoy the morning sunlight and a cup of coffee or two.

We had a really nice lunch here a few weeks ago.The food was good, especially the donuts, you have to try them! Our waitress was fab and the cocktails were really tasty. We had a sea view, so was great for people watching. This is a very popular restaurant and can get busy, so make sure to book ahead.

The location is very nice but the restaurant is very busy, loud and crowded. If you want to see the sunset better get early. The staff was very nice and helpful. We only ordered pizza which was pretty good but very overpriced.

Love this place. Even though it was busy, the service was great. We shared one artichoke pizza between two - it was delicious and enough for a light lunch. We washed it down with a couple of glasses of champagne - what a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

I realize I'm behind the times. I hadn't noticed an old home town bar, La Paz, was gone. In its place is The Strand House. It was a really nice, relaxing evening. And despite being crowded, it didn't seem so. I loved seeing people of all ages around us. It took any stuffiness out of the air and left a... More

I have eaten here twice and both times the food was outstanding. It is creative, beautifully served, delicious and consistent; all you hope for at a restaurant. I had the rack of lamb and kale salad which were superb and my husband had the artichoke pizza that was out of this world! First time there I had the branzino (fish)... More
