We had a good, well tasty lunch. The waitress was so nice, we got a wine from the house, because the cook was away for a few minutes. The food was fine, nice caesar salad with beef. Ocean view. Relaxed

Only one cook and one waiter, waited over an hour for food, no apology and no starter as he gave my garlic bread to someone who ordered after us and then had none left.

Pretty straightforward local restaurant doing the standard range of local menu except for the steak cooked on a stone. This was outstanding and a very nice change. Service well done and at a good pace.
