The food here was good but only as good as most of the other restaurants on the prom. The staff were uber friendly and made quite a fuss about one of our party 😊.

Had lunch here most days, very good food at a reasonable price Staff were very friendly. This restaurant has a good spot on the beach with sun beds. This area of the beach is sandy unlike some other areas that were stony.
