Wonderful friendly service with great local seafood and views. I recommend the local threadfin. Great for takeaways to eat in the park or done in on tables with a drink.

Recently went to la Beach for tea and was pleasantly surprised. Excellent venue and great views. However the only downside is that the food is quite pricey. For a family of 4 expect to pay over $60.

Great place to eat, you can get a cold drink or get takeaway, bring your own drinks and sit on the grass watching the world go by. Eat there often and always get great service and fresh seafood.

I am sure the option is there, how about grilled fresh fish and a beaut side salad? I don't have a gluten issue so I don't need to look for that style of food. The view is relaxing and gluten free.
