While traveling with my 82 year old mum and auntie, we were looking for a place with light fare. We had had enough of the large meals and hefty prices at various other places.

Called here on the first day of Feb whilst in the area with a group of walkers. Walked past the place at the start as they were renovating the signage, inside and out.

We had tried nearly everywhere and stumbled upon the Ocean Cafe on the way back to the car as we nearly gave up as most places stop serving light snacks at 5pm. Saw... More

Had to wait 30min. For chips and burgers for me and my partner. The food was tasteless. No flavour to the chips. They taste like cheap oven chips. No amount of vinger or salt helped. It wasnt worth the wait.
