Sitting looking at the water - drinking a NZ sav blanc while watching the sunset - doesn't get much better than that

“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

Good seaside location for a meal, that was reasonably priced. Service was a bit slow but we were advised before we placed the order that it was busy and it would take an hour to arrive. That didn't matter as it was good just to sit down and enjoy the sunset witha glass of wine. If we weren't warned in advance about the delay, then we would have been unhappy

“fantastic views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

Very pleasant. Lovely setting overlooking the harbour. Casual dining. Food was very well presented & cooked & the experience was what would be expected from this type of cafe. A decent selection of drinks. Some lovely looking cabinet food that we didn't try.

“Fantastic value for money - location, location, location”

These guys are tucked away. Awesome sunset by the beach. Menu spot on for what we needed with a glass of wine. Staff bent over backward to accommodate us with a smile.
