“lovely coastal location”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

location was the key factor and the food was ok - its fine for a break and a walk on the breakwater and the staff are good but there should be table service for ordering as it is a restaurant and not a cafe and the queues can be horrendous

“Great location”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Quality of the food did not match the prices. Flavour of the smoked pork belly was too intense, the lamb was no better than we could cook at home. Dessert was disappointing. A nice cafe location but not so good as a restaurant. Good service and friendly staff.

“plain healthy food”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Recently we had an evening meal at Bach on Breakwater. My meal was a vegetarian pie which was very tasty and light. I also was served extra veges which were presented in a little jar which was rather cute. I really enjoyed my meal, as I just wanted something tasty, basic, without lots of fancy sauces.My meal was perfect, plain simple but presented very well, and very fresh.
Good selection for vegetarians and gluten free, but meats fish also on menu, and yum desserts.
Also good kids menu.
I had a glass of local wine so it was good to see the Bach selling wine from local vineyards.
The view over the sea is very pretty, you can watch boats come in and people walking on the sand.
The staff were very helpful and friendly, and changed the menu a little to suit our needs.
Parking is very close, and lots of parking.
Really looking forward to my next meal at the Bach, and they also have a birthday club and Thursday coffee club offerring free coffees, and wine for your table if a birthday group dinning at night.
