Description: The site Barchetta now stands on has been serving refreshments to the locals and tourists for almost 50 years. First as a kiosk where children could get ice creams and beach-goers cold drinks and snacks. It then evolved into the North Cott Cafe and was "the" place for breaky by the beach. It became Barchetta in 2002 and now has a flourishing food, wine and coffee trade lasting from dawn until dusk.

“Service always pleasant, Food very tasty”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

I like Barchetten , whilst it is in an expensive bit of town, the service is always good, even when its heaving and the food and cakes remain tasty. The real selling point has to be the balcony with the ocean views. Worth a visit.

“This restaurant is over priced and poor quality”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

I went with two other people for lunch and had a soup (pumpkin ) which had a sandwich which was a quarter of a ham and cheesey toasty $20 ... Quality average . As a main I had whiting which was poor . Four pieces of crumbed whiting put on a pit of tartare sauce with a pear and rocket salad and over cooked fries. $38 Nothing could describe this dish other than STODGE .& HORRIBLE Glass of wine $10 and then a cold flat white for I think $4.50 which would have been ok if it was hot . We had to ask on several occasions to clear the table and eventually it happened . If you like concrete floors cheap decor good views and paying through the nose for what is not even poor pub food its your sort of place . There are about 20 places close by that will give you better service the same view and better service . I also note their advertising says they will give you a blanket so they must agree with me that this is basically a summer kiosk trying to be a restaurant

“Breakfast with a view”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I had two breakfasts here. They were very busy but quick to serve and the plates of food were generous. You can eat inside a fully glassed area and see out over the Indian Ocean, or sit in the open air on the deck.

“Share meals, huge servings”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

We dropped in for breakfast one morning. The coffee was excellent. We then ordered a plate each. Wow, so much food came out, no one could finish it all. Delicious meals, tasty and flavor some. So our plan is to share a meal next time we go there. Hey, we are going back, always a good sign!

“LOVED IT - thank you”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

It was yummy - thanks.
Loved all the different accents in the restaurant - lovely tourist spot. Nice and warm when the wind was blowing a gale outside. Delicious breakfast. I felt like I was in Europe.
