Limited menu but everything we ate was fantastic! Chowder and haddock fishcakes were what we went with. Friendly, chilled out blokes running it. Cash only but you can get money out at the gas station in town and pay it there. Beautiful views obviously!

there is currently a listing for the hotel portion of the property, however I'm not able to find a listing for the restaurant. I'd love to post a raving review! It was excellent! Also, there are a few tips worth sharing with future visitors.
