Food is great, service excellent I went there twice in a 4 day stay. I told the waiter I wanted my food to look like the picture and it was better. Great cup of coffee and amazing cocktails.

Spent some time at BoardWalk in PE 21-25 March & had some drinks at Newscafe. Nice selection of cocktails , some non alcoholic ones as well and some interesting shooters for those who enjoy shots. The service could have been better , fortunately we were in no rush. Worth a visit if you want to enjoy a good cocktail/shot

Restaurant was very quite at about 3pm. Staff seemed disinterested although coffee was very good. Food average. Tables are old and in need of a revamp.

I ordered the steak fajitas which was poor meat cooked to a cinder. My husband ordered sirloin steak medium rare but it was also served burnt. The peppercorn sauce on the side was unrecognisable as such. The manager apologised and offered us something else which we declined but we expected him to make some concession on the bill either by... More

We stopped here after dinner and had a few cocktails. Really nice drinks, with a wide variety of choice on the menu for a reasonable price. Nice bar to sit at with good music. Bar staff really friendly. Didn't eat here, however we saw some food being taken to the tables that looked really nice!

We were attracted here because they have a very nice smoking section....but we should have smoked and left !!! The food is dismal, our avocado on rye with rocket and tomato is two pieces of dry toast upon which there is placed four slivers of avocado and four little slices of tomato - the rocket is one "leaf" of garnish...

I have visited this restaurant a couple of times this year and their breakfast special is the best value for money by far. If you haven't eat a breakfast at News Cafe then you missing out!! Do it before 11h00 in the morning and make sure you are hungry, because it's a plate full.
