Ideal restaurant for families with children, located overlooking the sandy beach. Lovely brunch type food, prawns in batter etc plus lobster soups. The spider crab was excellent. good selection of drinks and wines. A convenient car park across the busy road.

Terribly dissappointed with the food here. Everything fried, expensive junk food. So bad we couldn't even eat more than a couple of mouthfuls. Service poor. Only good point was the view.
