Surprisingly nice and amazing. This little restaurant nestled between other restaurants and cafes was very good and I only can recommend it. It is not the cheapest, however the quality of food and beverage served is worse it.

We decided to eat here after seeing a board advertising a seafood platter for two. The staff are very friendly and attentive and the food is amazing. We started with garlic bread which was delicious and then the platter arrived. Everything was cooked to perfection and you could taste how fresh it was. The menu has something to suit all... More

We were heading to the well known restaurant next door when friends recommended Cecada to us. Upon arrival we watched with amazement as people queued down the street waiting for a table at the neighbour's while we were quickly seated at a table for two looking out towards the ocean. Well, what a surprise. Super friendly staff took care of... More

Two adults for breakfast. Food was well cooked, fresh and tasty. We sat outside and the area was clean and comfortable. Reasonable prices for our meals. Service was friendly and did not take too long. Coffee was average though so that was the only let down.

Six of us on the table had finished eating before the two risottos for the other guests arrived. Atlantic Salmon and steaks were OK but steak was really small serve. Pasta and risottos were not nice and garlic bread was horrible (we could only eat one piece and sent rest back to kitchen - but no refund). Wine list is... More

Stumbled onto this restaurant walking past. Menu looked good and atmosphere was inviting. As soon as we were seated the waiter asked if we were in a hurry as there was wait of about 25 mins for food. We were ok with that, we weren't in a hurry. We ordered 3 entrees to share, the tempura prawns, scallops dish &... More
