If you Reserve a table in advance request a table overlooking the Ocean and Bay, on a fine day it's wonderful. Staff excellent and a great selection of Fish dishes and meat, all beautifully presented and very tasty. For a casual Lunch or dinner a wonderful place to come. Excellent Wines and Beers to accompany your meal. My only comment... More

We were fortunate to snag a last-minute booking at this venue. The venue is small but has terrific water views. The staff were very friendly, attentive and professional. Our food was first class. Can't wait to get back to this cosy, wonderful venue.

The Tuna was very expensive small serves for a main. Not at all tasty. The basil sponge was tasteless and the Tuna minuscule.

A regular haunt just down the road from where we live, we wanted a relaxed beach-side dinner for Christmas Eve. The Cerberus is nothing fancy but offers a marvelous sunset view over Half-Moon Bay, and well prepared, simple fare with the emphasis on seafood. The entrees are large enough to dissuade one from mains, with the sashimi very fresh and... More

Service was quick - about a 15 minute wait, but we were given a buzzer so could stand by the sea wall and walk while waiting. Burgers and fish was terrific, and the portion of chips was a decent size but not quite crispy enough.

The menu changes but the quality remains the same. Brilliant venue in what might be the Mediterranean with the cliffs at sunset in the background. Great place to take visitors, plenty of parking and right on the water.

It was our wedding anniversary and the staff put us on a beautiful table at the window overlooking the bay. The staff were fantastic & couldn't be more helpful. My hubby had the pork belly & he said it was the best he ever had, I had the scallops & they were Devine. Generous portion sizes for the mains, which... More

Saturday lunch and the restaurant is packed: first lesson - remember to book! Tables by the window are crammed together but there is a bit more room further back and you still enjoy a fairly good view of the bay and coastline. Service was a bit hesitant to start but warmed up as the meal progressed. The Fish and Chips... More
