This was a nice cafe/ restaurant which had fantastic meals. The burger they we got was huge and extremely delicious. Being on an overseas holiday, the use of their free wifi was very helpful. Would recommend to anyone wanting lunch or dinner.

The food is nice but not the best. Serving size is average. Suitable for big groups and children. Price is pretty standard.

We expected this restaurant to be a lot nicer based on the reviews on trip adviser but we were completely disappointed. The decor was incredibly worn and felt unloved. The atmosphere was non existent and we got the feeling the staff didn't want to be there. The menu was extensive and great for kids but when it arrived it was... More

The staff at Breakers were welcoming from the get-go and told us about the daily specials which included a buy one, get one free, steak deal. The restaurant is causal and has an almost pub-like feel (complete with sticky tables and game machines) but the atmosphere was up-beat and the music was classic 60s and 70s Motown stuff. We had...

We had a large group celebrating a birthday dinner and due to it being so busy we were seated in the function room which was just perfect for us. Considering they were so busy, the waitresses were very attentive and we didn't have to wait very long for our meals. The food was good as always and we had a... More

Sadly the place has really run down since I came a few years ago. Chips were really cold sticky ribs were dry on all edges. Sauce had minimal taste. Kids chips were cold too. Staff very apologetic. And friendly. But next time maybe somewhere else.
