Perched on the cliff edge with spectacular views, we came here for dinner and watched the sunset. The food was really good - proper meals, fresh salad, well presented and filling. Staff are really friendly and prices are reasonable. You can't go wrong...

I'm not sure sorry it is quite a while since I visited and I'm not local. As far as I am aware they are open all year round. And if I remember rightly only open till about 4pm.
