There was a good choice on the menu, enough to satisfy most tastes but it did have a Spanish feel to it, just what we were looking for. We had garlic prawns... More

This is a great place to stop for a drink if you have kids, there is a small play area right in front of the outside seating area. We had cocktails, which were nice and competitively priced for the area.

We enjoyed a very nice three course meal here in this family run restaurant. The waiting staff were all very friendly and chatty, and the food was delicious. If you like fresh seafood I'd recommend this restaurant because the serve freshly caught fish as a special each evening. The food is reasonably priced too. We had a two course meal... More

We went here for breakfast and lunch a few times during our stay. The staff were so nice and very attentive. The food was good, when you just need somewhere inexpensive with no fuss this restaurant is perfect.

It is certainly... More
