Had lunch there today with family. The food was good, but very overpriced for what you get. But I guess we were in Black Rock by the bay and the views of the bay aren't cheap! The layout is cramped and the room was too warm. We asked for the airconditioning to be turned up, but apparently that was not... More

You may have to wait in line for a bit, but it is worth it. The fish and chips are served fresh and hot! You have a choice of several types of fish and sizes of chips. There are family packs for a group. Soft drinks are available. Watch your chips as many seagulls are out for a bite. You... More

We were fortunate to snag a last-minute booking at this venue. The venue is small but has terrific water views. The staff were very friendly, attentive and professional. Our food was first class. Can't wait to get back to this cosy, wonderful venue.

The Tuna was very expensive small serves for a main. Not at all tasty. The basil sponge was tasteless and the Tuna minuscule.

A regular haunt just down the road from where we live, we wanted a relaxed beach-side dinner for Christmas Eve. The Cerberus is nothing fancy but offers a marvelous sunset view over Half-Moon Bay, and well prepared, simple fare with the emphasis on seafood. The entrees are large enough to dissuade one from mains, with the sashimi very fresh and... More

Service was quick - about a 15 minute wait, but we were given a buzzer so could stand by the sea wall and walk while waiting. Burgers and fish was terrific, and the portion of chips was a decent size but not quite crispy enough.

The menu changes but the quality remains the same. Brilliant venue in what might be the Mediterranean with the cliffs at sunset in the background. Great place to take visitors, plenty of parking and right on the water.
