Visited this establishment with my children today and must say I was massively impressed. The food was cooked to perfection, the cakes were to die for and the staff couldn't have been more polite. The coffee was the best quality I have ever tasted, well worth the money if not twice and from what I could see of the kitchen... More

After ordering I noticed the girl putting an awful lot of butter onto what I thought was my sandwich so asked her to remove some. She abruptly replied it's not yours, fair enough. After a... More

I know a great place when I find one, and here's one for you that doesn't get any better. Located opposite the harbour, tremendous views of the boats coming and going, inside and outside seating area, carefully prepared food from a well stocked menu, this is the place to be. Open all year round too, I think this place gets... More
