We had a very nice lunch and the view was amazing, tasty well affordable meals with attentive staff. Sit outside or inside with the air conditioning, the meals are very well proportioned and won’t leave you feeling hungry.

Service, View of the ocean and coffee are good points. However the lamb lunch special was not well made - very tough meat to chew and felt like it was re-heated.

Hi Liza - thanks for your question. The dress code is casual - the only rule is that you cannot be shoeless and must wear a top i.e. no swimwear, men topless in board shorts etc... Cheers - Nathan
