Stopped for lunch while having a beach day. Homemade burger was great, and the woman who works there was very friendly. Would go again!

We visited here one day while strolling round the harbour. The location is lovely, great place to chill in the sun or shade and watch the world go by. We both ordered toasties which arrived quite quickly and tasted good, chips and salad were also...nice.More

FOOD NOT AS DESCRIBED ‘SEA BREAM’ actually a VERY SMALL ‘SEA BASS’ CALAMARIS NOT FRESHLY PREPARED (although I have no proof except that I KNOW the difference both visually and in taste) also were obviously cooked in STALE OIL. Waiter was delighted when we showed...him a photo of a sea bream…seemingly he had been struggling with this problem all day. Only redeeming feature was the removal of the revolting calamares from the billMore

Great location, front of the harbour. Outside dining listening to the waves and street music. Elderly staff friendly. Food average but offset by the locations.

Worse customer service ever, avoid this place. Waiter absolutely rude, didn’t want to split the bill and we were in 3 friends. Food all from frozen. AVOID

Avoid this place. Poor customer service. Terrible attitude from staff. Plenty of better places to go that are welcoming and excellent value for money.

Pros Location - This cafe is set right on the 'strip' running up to the harbour, so it's a great sun spot and place to people watch. Price wise, it's definitely one of the cheaper options in this area. Free wi-fi (password is on menu...so saves you the hassle of having to flag a server down to ask for it). Cons We were being asked for our order as soon as we sat down, with no time to even glance at the menu - it was almost as if they were worried we were going to walk away, so needed to somehow make us stay (i.e. by giving them our order!). We only ordered a coke and pint of beer and this took forever to come. Ok, not forever, but for 2 drinks, it took about 15 minutes, and considering the cafe wasn't even half full, I thought the service was really slow. Towards the end of the wait, a server did come out and joke that it wouldn't be too much longer, so I have no idea what they were doing inside.More

Had lunch here and found it very good value for money. With beautiful views out into the sea and the fact there is not much traffic going past helps as well. There are lots of bars and cafes along this street we just happened to...choose this one and were not disappointedMore

Nice place to look around and admire the wolrd and the sea. The staff was nice, I had beer, tarama and halloumi. The tarama didnt impress me but tje halloumi was all right. Moderate prices.
