“Great lunch spot!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Just a lovely location, although not actually on the beach, it's so close and has a lovely beach cafe feel to it. I nearly always have the fish & chips there, always a good meal.

“Good food, poor service ...”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

... which shouldn't be blamed on the waitresses. Very slow for food to arrive on first visit and had to ask twice for missing item on second visit. Again, not the fault of the waitress. The manager (from Mobberley, UK) was very friendly and accommodating which could not be said about the owner(?) who was rude and arrogant to several customers, including members of our party. We did say we wouldn't return after our first visit and wouldn't have done if the food wasn't so good and the location so convenient. Also appalled at having to listen to stand-up row in the kitchen whilst having lunch.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We had a meal here this evening which was superb. The Croatian fish soup was just amazing & far far better than bouillabaisse! Then we had tiger prawns with roasted vegetables - so succulent & perfectly cooked with roasted veggies. Friendly staff too and a wonderful Creation Shiraz to accompany our meal.

“Seafood platter was terrible!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Old fish, rubbery prawns and well overpriced. No wonder as chef was surfing the net through lunch. Wont see us again.

“Ideal beach restaurant”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

But, the service was appalling, so slow, sometimes waiting over an hour for food to arrive, with such a captive market from the beach, they should look to improve their service. But then it is always full, so they may not need to!!!
