Good place to eat with nice view overlooking the beach. Our orders and requests were chaotic but the food was good , but well priced so should be, still worth a visit but some sort of management required.

We visited the cafe today. It was busy but they said we could book a table at 2. The staff were very friendly the setting stunning and the food was the best fish and chips we’ve had. Really pleased we visited :)

Right on the beach with spectacular views and a relaxed atmosphere we serve uncomplicated and fresh seafood made from the very best ingredients in an iconic award winning building. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner inside the cafe and offer take out from our kiosk on the end of the building. We recommend booking a table, you can do this by emailing or calling us at the cafe.
