What a fabulous vibe. You feel like you are eating at the beach as the floor is sand. Food is beautiful and fresh and staff are very friendly. We had a pizza and the pork belly. Yummo. Great for family and groups of friends.

Hi skyetip, I have spoken with the Supervisor who was on last night who advised me he didn't feel he staggered the bookings well enough which placed undue pressure on the kitchen so he apologises for that.
