“Great Service”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

We had dinner here while on holiday and were very impressed with the service. The food was very good, some may consider costly but it's comparable with the area. What made the meal for us was the waiter, a lovely fella from Slovakia. His professionalism, excellent manners and all round service skills were worthy of note even with our over excited dog. He is a great asset to the establishment!

“Coffee and sandwich were great, but appalling service”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

If you want to wait and wait and wait to be served with a nice view, Blue Tomato is your place. Even when you ask can you take my order (after 10 mins), it will be a response that your server will be with you shortly. 10 mins later we order and then wait to be served. Really is a shame, this place should be fantastic, and needs to be with the competition developing around it - plenty of staff, many great, but let down by just one or two.

“Love, Love, Love!!!!!!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Me and my Dad stopped here by chance whilst exploring Rock on quite a hot day in June this year. We decided we wanted a drink and a cake on the cake counter, the seats are great its all bring the outside in and a great place in our opinion to people watch! The service was fab i loved the overall atmosphere it was so fun and you could tell the waiters loved there job! We expected just cake on a plate but how wrong were we, it was presented beautifully with chocolate sauce/ fruit coulis with fresh fruit, i just expected the cake to be put on a plate not all the extra detail they went to! The value for money was great i would love to come back here for lunch if i'm in the area again!

“Excellent beach lunch”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

This place is well suited for the beach crowd due to its proximity to the beach and main road. It has a cheery atmosphere and resembles like something out of the Mediterranean.

Though slightly rushed at times the waiting staff are all polite and courteous, the snacks we took to the beach were just what we were after. A cheese sandwich for the kids, decent coffees and a nice ice cream shake. The chips were also delicious.

Though slightly on the costly side the food and prices are comparable to the rest of the area.
