Called in for a coffee and snack for we had very good service and very good food here last visit ( see earlier review of this establishment). I had deep fried blue cod ( again), my partner had a bowl of seafood chowder. We had fond memries of past identical seafood meals two years prior. We realise chefs and cooks move on (that may have been the case here) for both meals were left wanting. The quality was not as good as that previously experienced. We did have the opportunity to mention this for both waitresses on two ocassions asked how the meal was. We elected not to say anything and left the majority of the food on the plates.
In hindsite we should have mentioined the food qualaity for how can one improve if never told of shotrtcomings.

The location with its beautiful view and end-of -the-world feeling makes this a very good lunch stop. The food is also good but the interior could do with an upgrade.

first we'd like to say our waitress was really nice :) and helpful.

we went for lunch and got salmon, mussels, seafood chowder, and some bread.

salmon was cooked really well, and mussels weren't bad. but we weren't overly impressed given the price (about 100 total).

We arrived early for lunch and were warmly welcomed and given a great table. The service was quick and efficient.
The seafood chowder was excellent and we shared a single person platter which had a great variety of seafood but probably too much batter and too little salad to be really good.
Having just walked to Stirling Point we were hungry and so the finer points of the meal didn't matter as much as the location. Watching the fishing boats coming and going was wonderful.
It was expensive but perfect as a treat to finish our holiday

Visited late in the afternoon. A great day, brilliant views however was disappoint by the staff attitude. Didn't stay long as were put off by the staff attitude.

The sign post and artistic aluminium chain presented many photographic opportunities.
