Good basic food but that is as good as it gets. Staff unhelpful to the point of rude. Tried to place an order at the counter totally ignored. The only person with a smile was the lady clearing the tables.

Good views from the café. Would have like a beer which was not available. Had a cappuccino instead which was actually very nice.

Very nice views and service was good but food was only ok, my chips had black bits from the fryer on them so didn't eat them. Lots of tables so even if it's busy u can find a seat.

We always stop off here on our way to Tenby to see the lake and the dragon. We have seen this Cafe develop over the years. It's a lovely place to stop and eat with views over the lake.
