The restaurant was cute and adorable! Lovely views of the ocean and the main streets. Would have liked more variety on the menu to choose from :)

Best meal out I've had in a long time. I recommend the beef ribs. The meat was fall off the bone tender and the sauce!.... If I wasn't in a restaurant then I would've licked the plate clean! The service was good and an open fire made it very inviting.

I ate here with friends in February 2013 and the food was excellent and good value for money. Good wine list and plentiful selection of wines by the glass. Restaurant had relaxed atmosphere and the service was attentive and friendly.

Sort of like the village cafe that you dream having round the corner from where you are living or staying. No fuss, no glitter, nothing fancy.... just honest regional hospitality, comfort and relaxation. Smoky fire right beside us set the mood. Cannot say that the food was better than average but the relaxed atmosphere counteracted that.
We were dropped off in the village at lunch time on one of the wine tour bus groups and found the right place. The minor negatives - My chicken liver pasta dish was very overdone and Cheryl's fried seafood risotto balls had the added bonus of a bolognese risotto ball included. They did give us a complimentary dessert as a big sorry. Despite the stuff ups we both smiled these small things off and had a very very relaxing and great time here. Thank you and yes... you should stop off here at this cafe and relax.

A menu with a few more interesting options. Coffee tasted like coffee. Service was prompt. Building had character. Good value. Loved the bubble & squeak. Would definitely return, maybe next time for dinner.
