After sitting in a cafe for 20 mins and not receiving service we left and went to this place. I hate walking out of places but definitely was a good choice especially after the good service we received from the Fish Inn and the coffee and breakfast was great. Value for money. To top it off the view of the... More

Excellent friendly service and the food was quick to arrive and very tasty. Nice spot to have lunch and look out over the rock pools. Also would be a great afternoon spot for a beer and snack.

My dad wanted to go here because the view looked amazing. That was about the only thing good about it. We only got coffee and a muffin but would not go back anytime soon. Coffee was burnt and bitter and the "triple choc" muffin was dry as a bone and served with fake cream. The only reason why it didn't... More

Michelle Sorry to hear about your issues for the first time via Trip Advisor. If raised while here we would have been very happy to select you another cake or slice from our cabinet and have fixed up any coffee concerns. Since putting on our $8.90 coffee and cake offer we have struggled to keep up stock in the cabinet... More

This is the place to take friends and visitors. We went for dinner and watch swimmers at dusk. I had the sat and pepper calamari ad my friend had the fish tacos. The servings are generous and the food was fresh and beautifully presented. My serving of calamari was difficult to finish--too much. But I persisted and the chips were... More

The place should be pumping great location - the food and atmosphere is ok but they could be so much better with a revamp and make over - I have found that service can struggle at peak times - On one occasion we waited an hour and a half for takeaway during a peak night - on quieter nights service...
