Ate here recently with friends and was extremely disappointed. We all ordered Triple Deckers, although given the wildly inconsistent standards between plates, one would think that we had placed several different orders. Mine was the last to arrive and was pretty meagre, with nothing but a measly piece of tomato and chicken between two very thins slices of bread on some of the sandwiches on my plate. The service was very abrupt, bordering on rude. However, the staff at the bar when we paid were more friendly.
Positives: The view of the sea. One of our groups's sandwiches was inexplicably well filled and as described on the menu. Had all our food been of that standard we would have been much more pleased.
