The restaurant has great views of the beach and excellent service. The menu is a little limited and rather expensive, but the food is good.

I am glad we made reservations, there was quite a wait for those who didn't have reservations. Our waitress was efficient and food came when expected.

The front half of the Strondin (the part that is attached to the gas station and has basic burgers) is open all day, but the nicer Strondin Bistro in the rear closes at 2 and reopens at 6 for dinner.
