We had breakfast here, and sat outside with the view of the esplanade and water. I ordered the asparagus and mushrooms, it came with pouched eggs and a delicious bread. My husband had the omelette. Both meals were nicely presented and tasted good.

Have eaten there twice in the last four days. Food is generally at a high standard and service is friendly. A bit expensive but right on the esplanade and a lovely place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine.
