I mentioned this in my review of the NDAC but for anyone staying in a Wigwam take your own breakfast and make it in your accommodation. The quality was poor and we had to wait a while which meant we were late setting off for our planned activity.

Was disappointed that the BBQ pack wasn't on offer anymore when we arrived but staff helped out with some other stuff. Other than that, the food was good and fairly priced. Staff had good costumer service skills xo

The cafe has an extensive range of food and not bad value for money. Evening meals are nice and breakfast selection also good. Sit outside and watch the diving and other on site activities.

We went to The View Cafe & Bar after doing the Zipwire ride - it's modern, clean and pleasant and has a good view out over the water. The outdoor seating is comfortable but is busy on a nice day. Prices were OK.
