On a sunny day in the whale season this location is hard to beat! You are 'on top' of the sea, 'touching distance' from whales & dolphins as they pass by & on top of the Jolandie, Jake & the rest of the staff are highly efficient & friendly

While on holiday in December we stopped here for lunch and drinks about 5 times, because the food was great and the view even better. Staff are always friendly. Definitely a place to stop at for a quick lunch.
