Had a super breakfast here looking out over the bay where there were a group of surfers making the most of the huge waves that day.

We stopped here for lunch and had a table outside overlooking the beach. The views are fantastic and I can't fault the location. Food was ok albeit the calamari and hake was very greasy.

I particularly enjoyed the curry which was full of massive prawns and really tasty. It was also great value for money. The meals, with two alcoholics drinks came in... More

We walked down here for the view and stayed for a very tasty lunch on the outdoor deck. A few salads and a pasta dish available for vegetarians plus loads of fresh fish options and a wide variety of drinks. Prices were reasonable for such a popular spot and the waitress who served us was so friendly - we would... More

Great food, fantastic view, casual but attentive service although very full most of the time. We spent a lot of wonderful summer evenings there over the last 6 years.
