Came here for dinner and drinks on a Friday night while waiting for a flight. Lots of seating and a variety of dishes and drinks on the menu. The 'club' part has a $10 cover, drinks were incredibly cheap and there was a fun atmosphere!

Love this place to sit the sun while we wait for our plane. Good food next door in the restaurant and cheap drinks at the bar. Lots of outdoor tables and chairs to soak up the weather.
And this time we got whales playing right in front of us!!
Must say the $3.50 beers are always a great final send off.

Was lovely to have a drink with the views of the ocean during the day. Staff offered good service and the atmosphere was relaxed.

Live music every evening till 11.30pm..
Also a DJ. Awesome views of the sea front row seat to the whales. Cheap drinks $3.50 all day every day. Can be noisy for the inhouse guests staying onsite.
