Relatively expensive and quality of food not great. Steak only a couple of slices of meat and overcooked.
Great location.

“dinner on the deck”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Great food and service , only down side was a stray dog walking around the dinners , the staff should have stopped the dog getting on the eating area and the dinners trying to send it away.

“A bit like a Dennys on the beach”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Great Location, right on Muri beach, the food is fine, but fairly plain fare. Staff were friendly, even though they were rushed off their feet.

“O.K.”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Like Sandals, just down the beach, this place is pleasant because of it's location. The food is standard, the menu similar to everyone else's and the service haphazard but friendly. Good if you enjoy huge hamburgers and tomato sauce.
