We arrived late on a busy evening, but Debbie found us a table. Lovely food, fab location and Debbie was super helpful in advising us where to go and what to see. She even dropped some umbrellas off this morning. Gratis! Now that's service.

This place is becoming a favourite for me. My partner took me for a meal on valentines night and we were not dissapointed. The new owners were very friendly and welcoming. It was good to see they have kept the waiting staff as they are very polite and friendly.
I had the beef which was cooked to perfection for me and just the right amounts of veg so I wasn't overfull. The jus was very moreish and tasty. We shared a banoffee and salted caramel sweet which was on the house as a valentines day promotion.
We will be back soon

This cafe faces the Mapua wharf so is a very pleasant location to enjoy excellent food and very good service with indoor or outdoor dining options and children are also well cartered for. On a sunny day this makes for a very enjoyable dining experience.

We have had three fabulous dinners here, each time sitting outside at a table for 2 and watching the boats in the estuary. Very romantic, and lots to watch! The food is perfectly prepared (we have had beef filet, lamb with watercress, and the third time a lovely white fish - Cardinal). The entrees and salads were unique and so tasty. The wait staff was friendly and fun -- great suggestions and descriptions of wine choices. And we had a different dessert each night too. I give this place an A+. We have been staying in Mapua for several days, and walked to the wharf, which has a fascinating history on plaques on the side of a building, as a former shipping spot for the apples grown right here.

Three people at our table had the Sicilian seafood soup, which was divine. The fourth had the fish and chips which were also declared superb. The service was good and the view spectacular. Certainly worth a detour off the main road.
