We have eaten at this restaurant twice now in the last week and have thoroughly enjoyed each visit. Burgers, fish and chips and tacos. The first time, we arrived about 7pm and ordered burgers and pizza. Both arrived very quickly, fresh and hot. Pizza crust was thin and crisp, burgers were incredibly good, very meaty and fresh.

We ordered 2 prawn dishes, nearly an hour later the staff served fish-n-chip and chicken taco that we didn't order. Only then the staff told us only 1 serving of prawn available. Wasted our dinner time waiting mediocre food with poor service and long wait times.

We enjoyed some of the best burgers ever at this relaxed little place. The restaurant is right on the beach with an amazing view of the sea. The service was great and prices very reasonable. We will be back!!

Nice view, the tacos and potato were OK, service acceptable. For visitors enjoying to sit on plastic chairs with a stunning view onto the sea a good place to have a quick lunch, but certainly not a #musthaveeatenhere place

Great spot for a beach lunch, homemade chips were fab and lovely, friendly staff. Kids shared the chicken in a basket, perfectly battered real chicken pieces.

We went there for lunch. I was dying to have some different from curry and I was not disappointed! The sauces were tasty, the service is good the burger and fish tacos are to die for. We went back twice!
