For the amount we paid ($77 for two) we were expecting a huge serving of unforgettable food. Unfortunately the lobster was fresh and cooked well but tasted so bland. The fried rice and coleslaw were also quite tasteless. The best thing was probably the chips...More

This stop provided us with very fresh seafood for lunch. We had the bucket of cooked cold prawns and half a lobster (should have ordered two as it was superb)! Very casual dining in the outdoor open garden area.

Amazing industry of lobster farming, the scenery of the Cervantes coast is beautiful. But seeing that there is so much lobster in the place food is way overpriced.
