Nice spot with an ocean view and good for people watching. Is the fish mollee and some breads, the food was so full of flavour - yum. Price was very reasonable, I would eat there again.

We went for drinks in the afternoon and it was steady and drinks were a fair price. We have walked past in the evening and it is very busy, a good sign!
