Treated ourselves to some lovely sea food after visiting the fairy pools (a must visit). The food was exceptionally fresh and very good value! The place offers a nice view into the bargain.

We love oysters and expected more. They close early and are not a dinner option not that is matters because it’s not memorable chose a better seafood restaurant instead
