Ate here twice as the food and views were great. Hake was excellent and Brampton Sauvignon blanc was superb. Got tables right by the Heads both times, so stunning views.

Went here for morning tea and coffee. Got a fabulous seat by the window and the view was breathtaking. Lovely tea and coffee accompanied by chocolate brownies which were delicious. Would love to go back for breakfast as the menu looked great.
