A party of five of us, including an elderly person with mobility issues, called here late one lunch time. We were the only customers in the café. It was a little difficult with the elderly person because the car had to be driven up a very steep slope to allow this person to leave the car and then he had... More

I visited recently and received a good level of service from all staff, my mother being frail was assisted whilst i dealt with the rest of our troop, of small people, we enjoyed hot drinks and a light lunch and we can say next visit we will be back again.

this is the second time that we have visited and found the service appalling. The food is pretty good, views amazing, but the front of house is unprofessional and embarassing. Amazing potential because the kitchen produce good food.

We've eaten here a couple of times before, thinking it was nice but not really memorable. That all changed with our last visit, we had the best meal here. There were 6 of us 4 adults and 2 children. The children's meals were your standard meals but the children seemed to like them. The adults ordered, sea bass, roast duck,... More

We have eaten here several times on holidays to Woolacombe and decided to visit again. There was only us and one other couple dining. The attraction for this place has always been that it has a selection of local produce and seafood. I had the calamari to start and my husband had the pate, both really nice. I then had... More

Great food and friendly staff. There is a lovely outlook too if you sit outside on the terrace, overlooking the beach.

Enjoyed Thai night at the boardwalk whilst holidaying in woolacombe. Was a plus that we could also take the dog in, although not in the main restaurant. Pleasant, friendly staff. Would visit again

Dropped in for a coffee and the view was amazing so booked a table for dinner. The menu and the food were just as amazing. The River Ex mussels were cooked to perfection and the portion was plentiful - my husbands steak was also perfect - prices reasonable and well worth it.

Booked a table for my mums 60th and evening booking was awful. A young girl who didn't acknowledge us eventually reluctantly took our booking. However she had to get the assistance of a chef to see if she could fit us in as they had 2 others tables booked. Then they ummmmm'd and rrrr'd whether we could sit in the... More
