Nice view from the restaurant. Breakfast was tasty. Service was adequate. The one problem I had with the restaurant was the smell. The menus smelled like a dirty bar towel as did various areas of the restaurant. Not very appetizing.

Despite the great location, the food was gross. Fish was bad (I think I got sick), chips were stale, menus hadn't been wiped down in years.

We love walking here and having breakfast. You can sit by the open windows and see the ocean. Food is good and service is decent.
