In Town for a visit and we went here for some amazing dessert. We had the sand castle and tiramisu with some lovely coffee. THE views were wonderful of the heavy waves today.

There is some dope art in the lobby from the olden days of yore and restaurant food too. The food is run of the mill but solid.

When here for lunch and the views across the road to the beach and waves rolling in are superb. The service was good and prompt and the food good
