This is a place with simple, delicious food and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff, service was ok. View excellent - watching the boats come into the harbour. And the seal was so cute.

Beautiful setting with delicious food and good service. Wonderful photo opportunities with the boats in the harbour and a seal coming onto the slipway several times to investigate.

This is a very 'laid back' restaurant that serves delicious seafood and looks out onto the harbour/parking lot. The service is on the slow side so suggest stocking up with a few drinks in an ice bucket. Draw factor are the beautiful stingrays that are hand fed by the locals.

We grabbed some dinner here when staying in CA for one night, was very busy with the locals which we liked, had a nice fun atmosphere, food was simple, had fish, some chicken, salad and fries between us and was very cheap. Beer and wine was also cheap, this place is not full of frills but nice and relaxing! Service was a little on the slow side and we had asked for one set of drinks three times until we went inside to get ourselves, nice big car park with fresh sea air, we sat under wooden roofs outside enjoying the views and sunshine.

Let's face it, there's not much competition in this area. That said this is good. The freshest of fish, a decent wine selection and service that was good given they were busy. We got a table (just) on a busy weekend when there was a fishing competition in town. We had the 'special' fish, caught that morning and it was really delicious. Well prepared with rice and salad. Veggies were an option as were chips. Given 4 and not 5 purely because this is more like an outdoor cafe with a canvas roof. If it's intimate comfort you want then look elsewhere but heaven knows where in this small town.
