We have been going to this restaurant for many years now and without doubt it is always an absolute joy. The location in Limekilns, the ambience of the restaurant itself, the friendliness of all the staff, the quality of the food and the value for money absolutely make this a place to go. Not to be missed.

Telephone to find out time of last orders for lunch, was told 1.00pm so rushed down to get there before 1.00..,,...to our surprise people were still coming in up to 2.00pm so why tell us 1.00. The place was empty, a couple out side and that was it when we arrived and as I said after that they strolled in... More

I have been here 4 times so far, haven't actually ate here so unable to comment on the good. However they have an ice cream parlour and I have gone in a few times with my niece for ice cream. Been served by the same girl 4 times and she is always so pleasant.

I pass this place many times but never had a chance to eat there. My husband booked for a special occasion and we had a very nice evening and meal! First of all location is fab, you are on the beachside. If the weather is nice you can have snacks and drinks outside. We had a table by the window... More

I've had lunch here twice in the last month and the food was excellent both times. The service is very good and the person who served us the last time (I think he was an Italian gentleman) was really funny - perfect personality for the job and much better than boring no chat service you get some places. Loved it... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a wedding being held nearby. The bride and groom had booked the hotel for us (my husband was best man) so we had no idea what to expect. This place is absolutely fantastic... the rooms are spacious and have all the expected amenities, the bed was very comfortable and I really... More

My work colleague booked a table for lunch as she had been before. Was not disappointed. Lovely relaxed atmosphere as soon as you enter, great view. Gentleman who I presume is the owner was cheery and nothing phased him. Bistro was busy but customer service was never compromised and never felt rushed. I had the risotto which was faultless and...

Came here on a Monday evening with my family having heard great things and we were not let down at all! Excellent service and an extensive menu all of which sounded incredible. I chose the steak pie which was on special and I have to say it was probably one of the best i've ever had! Our waitress, who I... More
