We had the salmon salad & the chicken salad & both dishes were excellent. Plenty of room to relax. Highly recommended

Totally reliable hidden away from the world cafe. I have visited dozens of times in the last decade. Get the fish and chips and be amazed. Right on the water, sheltered from the south-westerly and plenty of parking.

Easy squeezy this place, laid back, friendly and a nice spot during the week. We were just cruising and came across this place. Sunny day, mid week, not crowded

We stopped here while exploring the area on our motorbikes. Large meals freshly cooked and reasonably priced. Coffee was fine and the service prompt and friendly.

Tasty food, fast service. Very casual venue. Good not to have to cook while camping. Lovely walk along the beach after dinner.
