Food was well presented and tasty. Generous serves. In my opinion to call something a restaurant, someone should take your order, not order at the counter even though the man behind the counter was very friendly.

This place is terrible. The food was rubbery and worse than flavourless, it tasted horrible. We sat at our table for 20 minutes with the mess of the last customer before they brought our food over and realised they couldn't put it down (after I had stacked the previous customers' plates myself). They forgot parts of the order the took away the glasses we were using for water (its self serve for water).

Great place for some brekky or lunch. They do good coffee too, which is very important. Food is nice too, but the view over the channel sets it apart.

Our experience overall on this occasion was good+
We were warmly greeted and overall served well.
The coffees were ok, without being spectacular.
The breakky food was well presented, and of good quality.
Served at the table, but queue up and order at the bar / cashier..
Overall a 3.5 rating. Would go again when in the area.

Thank Marc D
