Always a reliable spot. Great for breakfast especially on a good day when you can people-watch on the beach.

This is such a beautiful place to have lunch. 5/5 honestly. Try the toffee hot chocolate as well as their amazing ice creams which you can order by scoop. Located on the beachfront and the views are great. The Service is good too.

We went for a lazy lunch on the day after Ironman 2012. We had a couple of courses from the menu including coffee, all very tasty and good. The wine list was good. Seemed like there were many locals. It has a beautiful view of the ocean with no road inbetween the restaurant and the beach. Will definitely go there... More
