“Limited Menu”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

I had the prawn stirfry and my fiance the seafood pot - both were satisfactory but lacked the uniqueness and authenticity of a seafront town. I would expect fresh produce with an interestingly original menu. The restaurant lacked that and our experience was simply okay. We were delighted that our dog could join us for our meal though:-)

“Den”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Have read many articles recommending a visit to this place. What a disaster and waste of time and money. I can't think of a worse experience. Waiters were really not interested and standard of food was pathetic to say the least. No view other than the road. Few other patrons around so being too busy was not a reason for such treatment. Anyway they will never see me again! !! Seem to be many alternatives.

“seedy tourist trap”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

other than a quick visit to the "Panty Bar" there is no reason to eat or drink here. it is situated on the main road and offers no real atmosphere, other than people watching and wundering why people are here given all the other amazing choices

“Paternoster Pub”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

Maybe it was as a result of a busy public holiday, however the house speciality of grilled West Coast crayfish was dissappointing. I'll try having the crayfish at another local restaurant in order to compare.
