Keep in mind that this is cafe and not a 5 stars restaurant.
The service is performed by young students recruited for the season.
Just enjoy the view and a quick bite.

Also visited on Monday !!If this is how they treat customers at the beginning on the season it doesn't bode well.The person who seated us didn't ask where we would like to sit ,seated us on the hottest day of the year so far it direct sunshine !!So we moved ,it took a long time for anyone to come to take our order.We were ready to eat lunch but decided to just have a drink and eat else where .
The management need to sort this out !!!

Went there for a coffee as it was the only place open in May. Service seemed bored and was slow. Price for the coffee was OK, although the coffee wasn't really good. A piece of cheesecake was rather pricey for the sice. Wouldn't go there again...

We discovered at the door that the place was closed that day. While we understand that it is probably too costly to keep it open on a week day at the beginning of the season, it would be nice if they had a web page announcing their schedule. The only option opened across the islands was a pizza parlor near centre island. I must say that it was a gorgeous day and the park was packed. Some people just don't know how to make a buck.
