Lobster breakfast flat bread was ridiculously tasty, excessive cheese for me. Omelette & bacon avocado flat bread were both outstanding as well. Service was pretty good. Got to watch boats being moved in & out of slips from our edge of the marina seats.More

The lobster flatbread was worth visiting for but we weren’t a fan of the calamari. I think it was the oil that it’s cooked in. Also had the red fish tacos which were good. But definitely recommend the lobster flatbread.More
