My friend recommended this place for a meal but warned we might not get in without booking and now we know why! Luckily it was hot and everyone had gone to the beach! The food was delicious and the waitress was extremely nice, the place was friendly and the prices were excellent! We will definitely eat here again!

Thankfully we only wanted a cup of tea. Only one type of tea available and we could only have it in take away cups (though we were welcome to stay and drink it on the premises).
