Went here with my husband and three kids and another couple for Sunday lunch. Would have preferred to sit outside and "people watch" but the larger tables are at the back of the cafe (and all the outside ones were taken in any case!). Kids ordered a pizza to share which was brought out as soon as it was cooked (always a bonus for those with kids as there's nothing worse than hungry kids getting restless). I ordered a warm chicken salad which was superb. Usually anything 'salad' is lettuce with a bit of chicken but seriously this salad was stacked with delicious chicken breast and salad vegetables with a tasty mustard and mayo sauce (not thick either). Really worth the money. My husband has something chicken with a tomato type sauce and was equally impressed. Meals are reasonably expensive for a cafe but they are really very good and value for money in my opinion. We would certainly go back.

Been here a couple of times and was actually dubious about returning the second time but the person I was with seems to like it so...the food isn't actually too bad, the pizzas are okay, but it's really noisy in the crammed in spot at the back that seems to hold the bigger groups, so if you want the smaller tables you're crammed against the window, with people walking past with your faces at their crotch level as they try get to the counter and you also have the atmospheric hum and glow of the drinks fridge which is in uncomfortable proximity ....

Don't be fooled by the hordes of people rammed into this place that they are there because it is any good... the pizza we ordered was very average. The following day my boyfriend was getting hangry, so we returned for a take away foccacia - surely they can't stuff this up, we naively thought to ourselves... oh yes they did! They forgot to put the tomato on as ordered. It was simply two dry cardboard pieces of bread, and a slice of ham and a slice of cheese. No butter. So little for the handsome sum of $11! We both agreed we would not even feed the foccacia to our dog. Just don't go there.

Fancied a small Aussie pizza with beer/wine and have to say all perfect including service.
Nice outside seating area with sea view.
Worth every cent
