Right in the heart of town, overlooking the bay. The menu has a good selection of food, which is well presented and tasty. A casual and friendly atmosphere.

“Sooooo much food!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

We went to lunch at this cafe on the seaside, and returned again at dinner time because the food was so good!
We were planning a hike in the afternoon so didn't want too much lunch and decided to share the fish and chips. A huge plate of 2 fresh fillets of fish, chips and salad was brought to us. I could not have eaten it all by myself unless I spent the afternoon sleeping! After our afternoon activities we went back there again for dinner. This time we had the wagyu burger and the chicken fillets, and were sorry we had bought 2 main courses. Again the plates were loaded with delicious food, beautifully presented and sooooo tasty!! Absolutely no room for dessert!!

“Great evening meal”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Excellent Meal, very quick service even though there were 2 other large groups there. Would have been nice to eat there during the day and take advantage of the great views from the deck.

“Not very friendly cafe service”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Stopped here for a coffee and snack lunch. No welcome at all from the female server, which surprised us for a tourist town, even though it was the middle of winter. Nice location and good views, but we felt quite unwelcome and won't go back. All it needed was "Hello, how are you, what would you like?" The service was quick and food OK, but perhaps she had a late night before - no excuse though.
