“Nice meal, great setting”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

Nice meals for the money, the crab au gratin & Lasagne we had were spot on. Lovely place to eat, the deck overlooked harbor

“Not great”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

We stopped here for a bite to eat and a coffee on our way to Valentia - afterwards we wished we had waited till we got on the island. The girl serving us wasn't particularly friendly. We ordered two coffees, a croissant and an orange juice - we weren't asked if we wanted the croissant heated and it just arrived plain on a plate, no offer of butter or jam (although the croissant was lovely). Our other son joined us and ordered apple pie and an orange juice - it was the worst apple pie any of us had ever tasted, thick salty savoury pastry and what tasted like tinned applepie filling - again no offer of having it heated or of cream or icecream with it. Our coffees were fine - however we ordered white coffees but got black coffees and had to ask for milk. The other waitress was far more friendly and we had a laugh with her after a mix-up with the bill. But we won't be back in a hurry.

“Mouldy cake”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Myself and my boyfriend called in to the cafe while visiting the area on the 9th of July this year, both had coffees and cakes, and realised after the first bite that the side of his cake was covered in mould. The lady behind the counter was not very apologetic, to be honest she did not even look surprised which might indicate that it was not the first time it happened.

“Good food”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Cafeteria style service but the food was very good. I had soup, which was delicious.- and one of the few places that something other than pureed vegetable.

Enjoyed some lovely homemade sandwiches made and served by very nice staff. Had our pet with us and were able to sit outside.
