    Great setting and views at sunset. Staff pleasant if a little disorganised. Food did not disappoint in taste and quality but presentation could have been better.

    Great little spot. Fantastic view and great at sunset. Food was wonderful, chef really knows his way with seafood, especially the squid, it was the best we've ever eaten. Pity we didn't find this place years ago. We will be regulars from now on.

    Friendly family-run establishment with a choice of take-away counter, downstairs cafe and upstairs restaurant in a fantastic location. If you want quiet, choose a weekday - like we did.

    We really enjoyed our Saturday lunch at the cafe. The views are great, stuff is very friendly, and our meals looked and tasted great too. Nothing too fancy but of great quality. We would definitely come back.

    My partner and I booked the upstairs restaurant for my birthday but upon arrival were put in the cafe downstairs which sadly is drab and sterile - and doesn’t have the same view of the ocean. I was told there had been a large group booking after mine, which relegated my booking downstairs (a phone call to confirm this was okay would have been appreciated). The young female staff was very polite and apologetic, so no problems there but I ordered the garfish and it was not fresh, plus way overcooked, dry and an unpleasant taste. My partner’s vegetarian eggplant was tasty. We decided not to bother with dessert and asked for the bill but were charged with the wrong bill, which was $50 more than ours. We pointed it out and were again given a wrong account. We finally received the right account. We live locally but will not go back. It was a very disappointing dining experience.
