We found this to be a Great place for us to have a couple of drinks whilst waiting for our boat trip. Prices are very reasonable and the views are the same as the more expensive restaurants!

Sally's is always busy. They have a good selection on their menu. They are reasonably priced. They are located next to the bay, so it is a great place for a coffee with a view.

Lovely position right on the sea front, enjoyed the sunsets which are right there in front of you. The food was great, well cooked and beautifully presented. It's real forte are the staff. They were attentive without being obtrusive. You never saw anyone walk in or out empty handed. All seemed knowledgeable about the food and the wines on offer.... More

We arrived just as the place was opening at 8.30am, plenty of freshly baked cakes and muffins etc. They had a full menu (not just breakfast) so plenty to order from. There are also plenty of outdoor seating available. We ordered the potato/chrizo stew, and couple of kids mac n cheese and meatballs pasta. The food was good hearty home... More

Had breakfast here one morning. Nice decor and the food and coffee was great! Friendly staff too. We had eaten here for dinner on the day we arrived. Very big portions so you may want to skip the starters unless you are starving!

We've been here a few times now and always make sure we visit Sally's at least once for lunch. The food is great and reasonably priced. You do need to go in order and pay for food and drinks before you sit down. Table service would be better although not a huge deal. Good kids menus available as well.

Cute, rustic family-owned place with timeless, romantic view. Sit outside but have a jacket to shield the wind. Met the owner who is a delightful host. Service was a little slow, especially since we were one of only three parties there at 8:30pm, but that's part of the charm. This town only has 850 people living in it, so help... More
