“Home from Home?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Views couldn't be better and food was OK. Asked for a reserved table in the window and although advised "Can't promise" it was indeed reserved. Perhaps the early hour helped - 18:30. We had a fishy meal but couldn't manage a pudding. Staff friendly and the place was clean if a bit basic. Happy to go again but time didn't allow and the weather was not the best for outside exploration.

love to sit out on the roof with a bowl of seafood elbow deep in shells while watching the games of beach cricket and undress under your beach towel going on

“Value and a view to match”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

This restaurant is right on the beach and offers fantastic views. If you want a table right by the window you will need to book but you can see the view from almost every table. A well priced and varied menu with excellent service. I had the fish cakes which were exceedingly tasty. Although it is advertised as a seafood restaurant, the menu caters for everyone even as far as burgers. The staff were all very friendly and enthusiastic. Highly recommended.

“Waiters driven by trips not service ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

As I waited to be seated a prompt friendly waitress showed us our table.

After waiting several meetings I made my way to the bar and placed the order. However the waiter got sight of me and raced to inform the person taking the order not to accept payment. At that point I realised that she was expecting a tip and me paying before would mean no opportunity to cash-in.

Nonetheless, I paid which resulted in us receiving out meals even later then those who arrived after us.

Once the meal arrived it was well presented with fresh products and good portions. The staff generally are ok, except for the lady with the waistcoat who acts like the queen bee.

I would come again however the service would definitely need to be reviewed as the staff as overly eager to seek their pockets interest rather than serve.
