We went to this restaurant for breakfast on two consecutive Mondays running at the beginning of December and hereby hangs a tale... The venue has an ideal location right close to the sea, with just enough height so that you can look down on the breakers, as well as having the benefit of far views. What a stunning experience awaited us, for we were treated to pod upon pod of dolphins, making their way down the coastline - whilst further out, the Southern Right whales were breaching and frolicing - creating great spouts of water and the combined sighting of these creatures, enjoying their natural habitat, was very special to see. The first breakfast we had there was a really good one - no complaints at all, but the following Monday morning, with a different cook in the kitchen, we had a breakfast which did NOT make the grade. Every single piece of toast was burnt - not just a dark colour, but blackened, the eggs which we requested to be soft were as hard as rocks and the coffee cold. I would have rated the first breakfast a 5, but in all fairness, with such an inconsistant quality of the food on offer, a more realistic 3 has been awarded.
The seating (most of it being backless benches) is interesting - the patrons have a choice of either being inside, or overhead shelter with wind protection outside, or full outdoors braving the elements. Smokers are also accommodated, fortunately at a distance from the other diners.
This is not a young child -friendly place, as there is space between the decking and balustrades for kids to slip through, so they need to be watched all the time - hard if you are trying to do whale spotting!
The owner obviously is a rugby fanatic, as lots of memorabilia especially about the late great Danie Craven are on display on the walls.
