Arrived at 13-50 on a Monday and was refused food as they cut off at 14-00??. Not today apparently. Great view which was comforting as we had an hour to wait for the next bus. You live and learn, never again.

Food is very good quality, good sized portions, reasonable prices and food is elegantly presented. Views are fabulous, and they have outdoor seating too 😊. Staff are polite. The only improvement could be to make it disabled accessible.

We arrived just before the kitchen was closing - but they let us order. Food was delicious. The crab and prawns starter was lovely and very filling. Staff were attentive and very lovely. Definitely recommend for a visit. Amazing location opposite a beach.

Billed as "relaxed dining and drinking". But kitchen closes at 14:00. On a Saturday. In July. That's lazy; not relaxed.

We ate lunch at the Houmet Tavern. A very pleasant spot with helpful and friendly staff. There was a wide range of food which everyone in our party enjoyed and they were happy for some of us just to order a starter rather than a...More

We had a table in the conservatory, always our favourite place in our favourite tavern on our favourite bay. Service was prompt, courteous and efficient and the food delicious and reasonably priced.

We came here on our first night without booking - the place was full but the manager kindly found us a table to sit at and we enjoyed our meal. In fact as I had had a starter I couldn't quite manage all my main...More

No they don't. Access to the retaurant is by a flight of outside stairs which are dificult if using crutches. Wheel chairs are definately a no go.
