Great service, clean and tidy restaurant with plenty of seating and an excellent outlook opposite Bulcock Beach. Good specials, great coffee and a menu to appeal to many. My vegetarian meal was very tasty and the corn fritters looked good too.

Had calamari pack which is calamari and chips with lemon slice and choice of sauce. Calamari was good but chips were undercooked and very ordinary. Make sure you ask for your chips to be properly cooked!
