Four family members met on a Sunday morning. We had coffee and enjoyed the view. We have eaten breakfast and lunch at Crest in the past and always found the meals good value and quality.

Good food, good atmosphere. The peanut butter smoothie is amazing. Loved the view looking down to the beach

The food is delicious and being able to eat breakfast and look at the view of the beach is a great start to the day. Only one thing disappointing is no booking so getting a large table can be tricky.

Amazing location and excellent food. We sat at the cafe watching the hundreds of people swimming and camels strolling along the beach while sipping on a lovely glass of wine talking to a few locals. Everyone was so friendly. It Doesn’t get better than that....More

My favourite breakfast place. Try the eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. Excellent coffee. Outstanding view. Come early, this place fills up quickly. After breakfast take a wander down to the sand dunes and watch the camel rides.

The food here is good. Best milkshake in a long time from the takeaway section the day before. The location is perfect. Most people seem to have a good experience. However I do not appreciate staff who cannot apologize for a mistake and fix it....More

I’m a little perplexed. The food is good, it’s one of the best milkshakes you’ve had, but you award us a one star review. 🤔 From what I can gather you have no complaint with our level of service towards you. Your review is based...More

Although a very busy Sunday we were able to secure a table, seating is first in best dressed. Order and pay at counter. I was warned there was a 30 minute wait for food, not in a hurry and with a beautiful Sunday sunny beach...More

Was lucky enough and got a table with the view. Once you got in it’s pretty much self serving, grab a menu and find a free table. It’s a Sunday but it’s not heavily overcrowded (5 min wait for us). Allpress coffee, not bad. Also...More
