Eaten here before and enjoyed the food but was disappointed this time. We both had an open prawn sandwich which turned out to be exceptionally bland and at £8+ was not value for money. The sun compensated to a certain extent but wouldn't rush back...More

Had a really good lunch here while waiting for the ferry. Nice location, reasonably priced and good food. The staff are very welcoming and the food is good. Local sea food is on offer but opted for the tapas for lunch, tasty selection.
