We have eaten here a few times in the past few years and have enjoyed excellent food, a lovely view of the ocean (especially at sunset) and good service.

Driving into the parking lot of this restaurant one is immediately drawn to the view, which is spectacular. Once inside, however, you wonder if the architect ever noticed where the ocean was. Much of the view is blocked by the restaurant itself, but we did...More

Hidden and near the golf course is this fun place! My wife and I had drinks and snacks in upstairs bar. They have a fine dining room also. Away from the tourists this is a great place to relax.

Loved the food, the atmosphere and the service. We went during restaurant week, and they had a special menu. Their lunch hours are long, so it's perfect for driving out to the coast.

We were two couples and went on a Saturday night. I had read some of the mixed reviews and was a bit worried. I needn't have been - we had a really excellent meal. Biggest most delicious oysters we'd ever had, other salads delicious (beetroot,...More

I have eaten here twice. Little bar atmosphere with a fireplace on one side and a gorgeous view of the Bay. Outstanding Fish and Chips (their specialty). Always stop here when driving up the coast.
