“not great”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

we have eaten here 3 times now. Twice in April and to give benefit of dought again in September. All three times were for breakfast and all three times we received the same poor service, cold food, wrong orders and wrong bills.
This is such a shame as the rest of the staff and entertainment people/characters are brilliant and the restaurant has great décor.

“It's a Haven, not that great”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

It is a nice restaurant, but the food is cold and undercooked. If you book early, you can eat in the camper van in the middle. There is a small bar which offers a range of alcohols and coffees/soft drinks.

“Great, casual, surf themed restaurant”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Very large, family friendly place with diner style menu. Our waiter, Matt, was really welcoming and helpful. He had just completed his degree in Economics so we had a good chat about his career plans while ordering. The food is really tasty and portions are great. Nothing is too much bother and all the staff work really hard and manage to serve around loads of kids playing and colouring in. We had 3 courses and everything was lovely and tasty.

We went for breakfast one morning too. Food is fine but maybe a bit overpriced for portion size which was a surprise as dinner had been good value. Free refills on coffee was a great idea and, once again, service was great.
