I don't know what's happened but food was appalling. have tried twice but still not happy. I believe it's over priced and rather fussy compared to earlier on in the year. Don't think I'll be going back until I hear it's changed. Also staff were disinterested.

The staff was attentive and the tapas were good along with the wine and beer choices. Rainy windy day but the view was beautiful!

I have visited this place for coffee or snacks or lunch a number of times over the past three or more years and it doesn't seem to be providing quite the same service and food as it used to.

Great place to have a fabulous coffee and breakfast. We stayed down the road on the strand and it was a good walk down the beach to enjoy a morning coffee...but note it didn't open until 8 on the weekend. Very popular location and friendly staff.

Good location to have a beer on a hot sunny day if you can afford $8.50 for a handle . Indoor and outdoor seating with shade if you need it . The food is simple and the decor is done with taste......comes down to location location

Had an amazing meal here. The Lamb Burger was absolutely to die for. The lamb was just melt in your mouth and all the other people in our group had a great meal and service. Highly recommend!!
