Excellent service, friendly staff. Food is also very good. Atmosphere is amazing! The Deck area is lovely, as you have an ocean view that is absolutely beautiful. Highly recommended.

This used to be better, not good value for money. Big breakfast lacking and not served with toast, instead a bland potatoe rosti. The view is great, but will be going elsewhere in future.

This is a great place to stop in for lunch or a coffee. I am a regular visitor and always get great coffee and service with a smile. Perfect view of the sea and just to relax and unwind.
