“Enjoy the day close to the beach ”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

Located just next to the parking at the beachfront, this is a great place to sit during the day and enjoy the weather. You can go to the beach before and after as it is just a few metres away. There is a good choice of food and I like that they offer different portions, for example you can have the chicken burger with 200g of meat, just 100g or in a small snack size. The burger I had was very nice, yummy sauce.
The only negative point is the service. I can understand that it gets busy at certain times but it really was Very slow the two times I was there.

“Great spot!!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

A must visit. Nice and simple. Nothing fancy, but the food is great and the service excellent. Such a nice view of the bay :). Really is worth visiting! We were there for sundowners.

Thought I would go back after ~ 18 years and have the same Lemon Meringue Pie ;) but it has changed for the better, pie smaller but more tasty and looks very popular with good service even when it is busy. Can;t wait to try their burgers again.

“Location, location, location!”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Visited late morning and surprised at how busy the place was both inside and the take-away side. We both ordered a hamburger which was served with fries, battered onion rings and cold slaw. The generous sized Burger patties were very juicy and well cooked but quite bland (seriously lacked seasoning!!). Our young waiter was friendly and efficient and our food was served very quickly. When leaving, my partners comment was "good roadhouse food but at restaurant prices".
