Recommend this place for lunch as food is nicely presented and fresh. Most pleasant to look out over the beach. The place seemed management heavy leaving waiting staff under pressure. Though not busy, tables weren’t cleared until they were needed.

Nice terrace facing the sea. They serve nice sandwiches after quit a search for it. You get enough food. The juices are not freshly squeezed, too bad.

The beach hotel is one of our favourite venues. Old world charm with good service. A little chuckle from the bar man when we ordered irish coffee with breakfast:-)

Lovely surroundings with a view to the beach. A menue with a selection for all tastes and pockets. Their menue of the day is very good and my favorite is the curry. The fish is also excellent.

We sat outside in a cool windy lunchtime. They lit the patio heaters. We had a steak salad and open salmon sandwich. Both were very tasty and well presented. The staff are genuinely helpful. Lovely setting and good value.

I enjoyed my two visits here but I have some reservations about the food. The seafood platter special was disappointing: everything was either crumbed and fried or battered and fried. It was not oily but I felt a bit nauseous from the frying overkill. The...More

We were there for lunch and am not sure how the dinner's are served. There are enough non meat options on the menu. We had 3 part of our group.
