The service and food were average. Nice views and there were outside and inside seating options. Expected a bit more.

There are different sections to choose from.We settled for the Pavillion as for the view.The location of this restaurant is superb and all visitors should have a bite of seafood there.I have been a supporter for many moons and recommend a relaxing visit.

A local haunt popular with all ages. Friendly staff and a nice menu. Have a glass of wine and relax and look at the beautiful ocean. They serve really good coffee, as well :-)

West Coast black mussels were something to behold! Reviewed at our table as best dish ever. This, combined with the lovely fresh oysters and wine, made our day. Ask for Gerry - warm, friendly and helpful. Great service!
