Interesting fact: Owner are the same of Purl cocktail bar in Baker Street London. This place is so cool! Literally on the beach you have few table outside on the beach with BBQ service! Then you go up few stairs and inside few table with some really mind blowing view! Full glass window allow you to enjoy the full panorama!... More

Booked a group of 25 which was pretty much the whole restaurant. Apart from the fact that there was a lobster shortage we had a memorable meal well looked after by Chris and team. Great fish specials and steaks, very happy to have gone back!

So glad we found this place, right on the beach so had the perfect lunch in the sun. Ordered the mac & cheese and added lobster, it was the best mac n cheese we've ever had! Chips were homemade with the skin on, tasted great. Homemade slaw was also great. Staff were really friendly and welcoming. Will definitely visit again... More

We weren't looking for anything fancy for lunch and thought this was just a normal cafe. Looks can be deceptive and the lunch we had here was absolutely fantastic. We had the Mussels & chips and a Macaroni cheese and both tasted great. Highly recommend this place.

Where to start. Super chilled atmosphere and completely on point with what you want from beach side dinning. It is not the cheapest meal I have eaten, but it is lobster and steak so what do you expect? Also, you have to pay some kind of premium to have sand between your toes and that view. If you are on...

Unique location/ view. Would recommend booking a table in advance, as the restaurant only seats around 30. Small menu, but food is beautiful. Had one of the best steaks ever. Prices verging on the very expensive though.

Just had lunch here, a crab sandwich, a table spoon of crab on yesterday's dry bread had to ask for the mayo, which should of come with it, even had to ask for a napkin. For £9 a sandwich I expected a bit more. I won't be going back.

Whilst on holiday we visited and walked on this beach and came across this lovely bar in the rocks right on the beach. It was a lovely sunny day so we sat outside watching the surfers and enjoying a local beer. We decided as it was so pleasant to have some lunch here and we were not disappointed. I had... More
