Was a good place for a quick lunch - cheap and friendly but no umbrellas meant sitting in the direct sun the entire time. A few umbrellas would make the world of difference. At night the place turns into a bit of a wild party scene so it's fantastic if you're single and looking for a place to party but for families would look for some other options. Food quality was good without being outstanding.

Great location on the beach. Great food from the guy with the grill on the side. Poor cocktails though.

We spent quite a lot of time at Lucky Tuna, more because of its position on the beach rather than the food or atmosphere. The first time we had lunch my boyfriend had tuna, which he said was lovely - but I had a tuna sandwich and it was so dire I couldn't eat it. Drinks were ok, staff pleasant enough although slow on service.

I'd say its nice enough for a drink but wouldn't recommend eating there.

we went for a sunset lime and soda. this is normally served as fresh lime but when it turned up turned out to be flat cordial. the waiter somewhat disarmingly said he had not made it and had told them not to put cordial in. we queried whether we should pay the (top) price for cordial but were told it was out of his hands. we reluctantly paid but did not make a return trip!
