“Excellent Cafe”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Excellent cafe which do great meals at very good prices, do brilliant own ice creams. We always call in after doing the shopping either for a ice cream or to eat.
Lovely views over the bay.

“Could be fantastic, what a waste”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

What a disappointment, its situated in such a lovely place overlooking beach and near beautiful coastal path and yet it looks scruffy and like a cheap cafe, the coffee could be really good quality but isn't and the ice cream is not so good either. Cold inside and looks like it needs a bit of money spent on it. A real shame, give it a lick of paint, make it less drafty and some new stock eg coffee & Ice cream.

“cold dining area”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

We visited Fortes in the afternoon and the room was freezing even the staff had jackets on. Our coffee was weak and bitter and the bacon was tangy. Usually our visits have been o.k. Only one table was clear of dirty dishes.
