Omelets were prepared well and the atmosphere is nice and beachy. You can see the ocean from your table. Coffee was so-so but tea was good. Missed out on mimosas and bellinis as the bar wasn't serving until 10AM. Waitress was friendly and attentive.

I ordered halibut, and received a tasteless piece of fish that was no doubt previously frozen. A red sweet sauce had been smothered over the top of the fish, probably coming from a bottle, rather than the kitchen. I couldn't eat it, so they brought...More

Although connected to a hotel the outside seating is nice but only a small area has an oceanview the rest is fountain grass. Vegetarian Friendly! Little pricey for amount of food.
