I love this restaurant, tucked away on the beach it must be the best kept secret on the South Coast! Their food is delicious, you are on the beach and the owner and staff are super friendly and efficient.

Food was good and portions were generous. Staff was very friendly. Awesome position right on the beach. Cocktails were not bad, tasted a bit like boxed cocktails though. Definitely a place to go if you visiting the area.

Fantastic setting on the beach; very casual atmosphere (plastic chairs etc). Service great. Food fantastic. I had more shrimp in my shrimp curry than I have ever had, anywhere! The large prawn dishes are on the pricey side. The fish serving was so huge we had to box it up for later. Wonderful.

We (three people in our group) decided to order all the starters that they had on the menu and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing complimented by the cold beer and the fantastic view of the sea. This is the life :)

Not only did my friends and I have running stomachs from the oil overloaded food which took an hour to be served at midday in a 1/4 full restaurant/bar I ordered a Pina Colada which arrived pink, when I questioned the bartender he rudely accused me of not knowing what I was talking about because he insisted that a Pina...

Unfriendly staff and just not a great experience. Food was average. Might be just to busy for all the staff
