We were really enjoying the view of te beach from the restaurant. It was excellent and hard to beat, and the view alone made it worth the trip there for lunch. Whilst our meals varied a bit we were overall very happy with our meals....More

Seems to be catering mainly for Asian tourist market. Food quality has dropped off. Panini poor with two tomato ends and a scraping of pesto. Very disappointing.

Enjoyed fast service for a good breakfast with a wonderful beach and surf views. It was wonderful spotting the whales swim on their migration north while eating breakfast. It has ample parking close by.
