This restaurant attracted us because they were not so overpowering with their sell technique-unlike the other restaurants along the seafront. We were not disappointed-we had main meals-lunch and dinner which were superb. Breakfast was amazing and good value for money-they seem to be the only seafront restaurant that served breakfast early-it includes tea/coffee-superbly cooked and generous portions. All the waitresses... More

Lovely bar on the harbor side. I just went to it in late morning/lunchtime, mainly for drinks, when it always seemed to have had a lovely breeze to cool you down as you watched the world go by.

This was one of my 10yr old favourites. They not only serve the traditional dishes but have many wonderful crepes and waffles on offer, which is why it was my daughters favourite for breakfast! The food isn't the cheapest but the service, view over the harbour and friendly staff make this a wonderful dining experience.

Great location for a relaxing and romantic time! Went here and found the location tranquil and relaxing sitting by the harbour with exceptional views of the sea. Went there late afternoon and was very happy with what we found. Enjoyed the fresh fruit waffle and our daughter enjoyed an ice-cream waffle (recommended)

My partner and I came to this lovely restaurant for full English Breakfast every day of our week long break, and then for 5 evening meals and I can say were NEVER disappointed. Maria the waitress was just lovely, and very helpful and 'fast'. The views are stunning here - and in the evenings especially and it's an ideal setting... More

Food here was average and compared to other restaurants in the area was quite expensive for what we had. Views over the sea were great though and it was a friendly and relaxed ambience.
