It was a very busy lunch time on New Year's Eve and we found the staff friendly, organised and efficient. We didn't have to wait long for our food and it was lovely. Great view and nice atmosphere, would definitely eat there again. Thank you.

We enjoyed a couple of drinks sitting outside the Seabreeze on a sunny afternoon. A bigger craft beer selection would have been good but it was a pleasant time.
