“A dinner disaster.”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

Upon arriving the counter person appeared to be wanting to be some where else. Only ourselves and one other in the cafe whcih should have arroused alarm bells, almost walked out and by the end on the dinner wish we had. I had a pizza and my wife a Lasagne my pizza was terrible and had very litte meat and tomatoes or much ressembling a pizza, i think the cook needs a new cook book or back to class, we even got asked to look after the shop while the server went to the toilet and some couple did come in and we had to advise them she was in the toilet. I had a feeling this building was for sale hence atrocious sevice and full price was the nail in the coffin for this establishment , a disgrace is being kind.

“Great breakfast by the water”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

Great breakfast overlooking the bay and good coffee. Good way to start the day especially if you are heading out on a trip to the Hole in the SRock or Dolphin Watching.

“Sometimes good sometimes not”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

This place is hard to rate and we ate here 3 times. Once it was great and the other 2x was really awful. The waitress messed up the order (pizza with no nuts) and then offered to pick them off when it arrived with nuts. As I am deadly allergic I declined but she kept picking saying it would be fine. Reluctantly, she got us another pizza.
