We are locals and keep giving the Green Dolphin a chance - service, food, decor are just average. View stunning. New owners so we will try again already see some changes happening.

We stopped in here for a family breakfast and the experience was not one I care to repeat. We were all really disappointed. I expect a beach cafe to have a some-what rustic appeal but the place seriously needs a bit of freshening up, it feels quite dingy and a bit like the inside of an old men's bar. As... More

Food is gross; just don't expect anything but crap. If you are hungry, it is probably better than McDonalds. We ordered 2 cocktails and 2 beers, which took at least 30 minutes to come. Wait staff is old and cranky.

Not an upper class restaurant at all. Service not so great either. BUT the food has always been good and being next to the beach helps too. The big glass windows invites the beach feeling in.

You sit right on the Beach - can see Dolphins and whales often, nice spot for a morning coffee and breakfast. Service can sometimes be a bit slow - but if you not in a hurry perfect.

Happened to choose this venue purely by chance, viz; convenient at the time. Interior is somewhat dated but clean & has awesome views overlooking the beach & Anstey's walk way. We noticed bunny chows on the menu & said- "What the heck, let's give it a bash"- thank heavens. The mutton bunnies we had were really, really good, even when... More
