We have started to eat here often. It's always reliable for good food, service and the position on the beach and views are lovely. Not overpriced, the food is hot and always excellent. Good for couples, families, to take children to.

Always quick and friendly service, delicious freshly prepared food and a homely atmosphere. Sit on the beach listening to the tide and basking in the warm sun as I did today (21st December). A highlight of our lunch was an impromptu visit by a travelling...More
