“Lunch after the movies”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Great food. My wife had the Salmon Potato Cakes with a nice salad; I had the beef burger with a bit of salad and had trouble managing to eat it all it was so big. Had a seat on the footpath but very comfortable.

Got home and my wife realised had forgotten her jacket, a phone call to the Cafe "they had found it and put it away for next time you come" and a few days later it was bagged and waiting for her, great service.

“Nice food, good service”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

This was my second visit with my partner for a pre-movie lunch. Food was good and service friendly and prompt. There is outside seating, but no view, though there is a quaint beach a three minute stroll past the cinema.

“Busy days = Slacker”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Went here for lunch for the first time,for the pricing you expect decent service.
The staff are friendly and cheerful, but the food has a lot to be desired.
Staff are friendly but eg ask what the soup of the day is as per the menu, and you can tell they'd rather not stand there and explain.

The food was mediocre and pretty average, nothing to rave about

“Lovely food, shame about the service”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Living locally I eat here often and while it's fabulous having a cafe and restaurant of this calibre on the doorstep I am consistently left disappointed by the service. Certain wait staff in particular need to be aware their conversations with the kitchen can be heard by diners. Food is lovely though, particularly the pizzas, and the cabinet selection is great. Atmosphere is always buzzing and it's a lovely place to while away a few hours and catch up with freinds, just a shame the lacklustre service lets it down.

“Sausalito does a great pre-movie dinner - glass of wine, pizza, salads - all good.”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

They always seem to be busy, and for the pre-movie meal - which it usually is for us -it is never any trouble for them if you tell the wait staff what time your movie starts- the food always comes in good time. They make excellent pizzas, salads, and the usual range of cafe/bistro food. Reasonably priced.
