Had dinner here twice and breakfast three times. The locally caught fish is amazing and all of the meals including the breakfasts are presented really well with thought and care. The staff are very friendly, helpful and professional.

My wife and I visited for a light snack. Her eggs benedict was excellent and my carrot cake with a dollop of cream was lovely. Coffees were good and service quick and pleasant. Would recommend.

It has gone from strength to strength. The food is always fabulous with enough variety and price to suit all pockets. The view is overlooking the lighthouse. The staff could not be nicer. Also a great bar nextdoor with regular music sessions.
