Good location just off the seafront. When we arrived, we wanted a table for 5 but none were available. The manager found two smaller tables elsewhere in the restaurant and made a table for 5 for us. Staff were excellent and very efficient. Food was...More

Called in for a cappuccino and to get out of the rain. Pretty busy but they were coping well and at speed. Spent a pleasant half hour people watching. Clearly the place is popular with the locals, always a good sign.

They make pasta, brusceta, pizza but fish they cant prepare. Over cooked Salmon, Pangasius not exactly North Sea fish.. Staff is over worked. Dissapointing visit will not return.
