We visited a few weeks ago and had a very average experience. The food was poor and still very expensive. The service was very slow and it took a considerable amount of time to actually get our food. The view is nice, but the food wasn't so nice. Very disappointing.

Went here with my family had a lovely meal for a resonable price..gorgeous views across to the needles and Hurst spit. Service was great. The only thing that ruined our visit was a brunette girl who was very rude and abrupt..and refused to give me hot milk and further on refused my daughter to use the toilets even though we were paying customer. All in all lovely cafe and lovely service excluding that one member of staff who we hope never to be served by again.

This is a difficult one to review because it's a seaside cafe and not a restaurant. We've only ever been for breakfast - normally following a hangover from the night before!

They do a brilliant bacon buttie, which, together with a strong coffee, soon banishes the hangover.

The views over the Channel to the Isle of Wight Needles are great. There's also loads and loads of parking nearby.

An enjoyable full english breakfast efficiently served by friendly and happy staff, with a lovely coastal view across to the needles. Also a good selection of ice creams from the kiosk. Will be returning.

Efficient and friendly staff. We enjoyed sitting outside in the sunshine, sipping our coffee and eating our cookies.
