Excellent food. Go for the fisherman's platter, my husband loved it (although my two year old ate most of the prawns) the portions are good sizes and the decor is nice, not to mention amazing views. Definitely worth a visit.

We enjoyed drinks on the terrace overlooking the ocean on a warm and delightful October morning. The staff were warm and welcoming and could not have been more helpful. Wonderful toilets - all in all an A1* experience!

We only had a coffee here, but the cafe is lovely. The toilets are really clean and the staff very friendly. You can sit outside on a good day and over look the sea, it is beautiful.
