“Quaint small restaurant with excellent service”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

My sister and I decided to eat here one night as I had seen the trip advisor reviews, it was a little further out of the main town than some of the other restaurants which meant it was a little quieter at the outside seating area which was actually quite relaxing.

The service was very friendly and the food was great, I had a burger because I was feeling really hungry, but it was simply the nicest burger I've had in a very long time if not ever, rare beef with a gorgeous horseradish dressing. My sister had a cod dish which she thoroughly enjoyed and to top it off, they even had a good selection of second hand English language books you could buy, which was great as my sister had finished hers and did not have another one with her!

We would have eaten here again but it is closed on Wednesdays so we didn't get chance, they had a poached pear salad on the menu we were dying to try, maybe next time!

“Good different”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

A tight menu with a choice of "different" food options and consistent quality at a reasonable price.

“Great quality food.”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Everything is freshly made so this can mean a wait for your meal but it is well worth it. Friendly and comfortable restaurant.

“Personal service, excellent food.”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

This is a great little restaurant close to burriana beach. The food is first class yet unpretentious-good ingredients and well cooked. Service is friendly and laid back.
Not the place to go for fast food but worth waiting for.
Best chips in town.
