I was treated to a meal by my grandson and his partner. Had never been here before. It was a very busy restaurant so I'd advise you book beforehand. Was lovely sitting having a drink and watching the seals in the harbour.

Unfortunately there is no parking to get get to this restaurant. There is a small beach on one side and a number of steps on the other. Hope this helps.
