The best lamb I have had on the coast! Superb. Food quality always excellent. Friendly service. Perfect for an intimate dinner. Lunches and breakfast are also excellent. I highly recommend this little restaurant.

We had been given a card for this restaurant 18 months ago but this was the first opportunity we had to visit. Firstly, make a reservation! If you just "turn up" you will probably be turned away!

We are regulars at Arte Cafe but haven't written a review before. The food, service and value in this lovely bistro are superb. James, Henry and the team are a pleasure to dine with and the menu, while small, is first class. The ribs and lamb chops come especially recommended. Well worth a visit.

Thank TonyWyl
