“Altogether lovely”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

What a delightful restaurant! The staff were very friendly and efficient and the decor, ocean themed, is lovely and added to our overall enjoyment. With a varied menu it hard to make a choice but we ended having the soup of the day (red pepper and butternut squash) and blue tuna with boiled new potatoes and vegetable. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and in generous portions. Strongly recommend it!

“Great food & service”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We were recommended Beachcomber by our accommodation, and weren't disappointed. I had the Eye Fillet with Seafood, and it was delicious. The steak was cooked perfectly, and the seafood was very fresh.

I can't remember what my friends ate; but we were all very happy. The service too, was excellent - very friendly and attentive.

My only tip would be - don't fill up on the free salad bar!

“Four fantastic meals”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Celebrating our son's 21st, we each ordered a different main course, and all were cooked to perfection. The pork I had could not have been better. As usual the service was friendly and attentive. I only wish the dessert menu would be a bit more adventurous. But still, great gelato's!
