Very nice location with great atmosphere - right on the beach front watching ships come and go. We ordered a variety of meals which everyone enjoyed. We were a table of 13 and one order was missed completely, but the meal sizes were generous enough that none of us left hungry.

Lovely spot looking out over the harbour, ideal location! We had lunch here and the food was fabulous! There is always a breeze blowing, being right on the water, certain times of year it can be a little cool but there are a few different seating options, but in summer it is lovely! Peaceful spot to sit and relax and... More

Gorgeous little cafe in a park surrounded by water and very serene. Small menu but I had the eggs benny and they where beautifully presented and perfectly cooked, a little on the pricey side but the surroundings are worth it.

Terrible service and food for such a lovely location Slow, impolite service. Greasy, 'old oil' flavoured food Even the salad with wilted lettuce was tasteless... Don't waste your money,Gi for a nice walk instead or bring your own picnic

Took the kids here for a lunch. Good options for food. Kids have separate options and the nuggets and chips more than filled them. I had the special - Atlantic salmon with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. Quite nice and the coffee was great. The outlook overlooking the water on a perfect sunny day was beautiful. Well worth it.

Sitting in the dining area watching the harbour is a beautiful way to start the day with a really lovely breakfast. The omelette was so fluffy and moist and loved their hot chocolate. Great start for the day. Service was fantastic.
