Windjammers was a great cafe/restaurant, but it closed in 2013. It's is now 'Love Cake' and this is an equally excellent place to go. Great lunches and fantastic teas, coffees and cakes. So glad to see there's a top cafe in the same place.

4 of us went here one evening, tempted by the tapas menu and we were not disappointed. Not particularly expensive (apart from the drinks) but dearer than a pub meal. Really well prepared food and helpful advice on-hand. Really nice tapas - we will go-back.

Tapas (on certain nights) really was a hit. Kids picked whilst we chose what we want for a change........ Excellent friendly staff and speedy service too. Good food and very reasonably priced too. Would definately recommend and shall return on our next visit to Swanage.
