Having visited a number of times over the years, service and food quality have, and continue to decline at an alarming rate! Cocktails have virtually no alcohol in them whilst being by no means cheap. We had to fetch our own drinks from the bar as they took over 30 minutes to arrive, after 90 minutes our food had still...

I have been to beach bobbies three times. Let me start off with the positives: Great ocean view from the deck. Has potential to be a 4/5 star place. That's it. Here are the negatives: Service is painstakingly slow. Read the other reviews. We waited ages to order drinks. Then ages for food. Then ages for drinks again. Then drinks... More

I wasn't totally satisfied with the service. We had to wait about an hour. But the food is quite good and trying the cocktail Don Pedro is recommended! They have a free wifi too. Because of the view it worths a visit!!

Went there on Friday night - was not busy but it took half an hour to get our drinks and around an hour and a half to get our food. Fresh fish was excellent but muscle pot was not anything to write home with one thin slice of bread to accompany the sauce. The battered fish was oily. Service was... More

We were looking for an idyllic venue on the South coast which overlooks the sea. We bumped into Beach Bobbies. A beautiful view over Port Edward beach. Typical beach venue. We ordered the Nemo platter from the starter menu. We were not disappointed. The seafood was well prepared and tasty. The other meals which were carried past us looked delicious.... More

To be fair, one can't expect fast service on the coast over the festive season - but when our bottled beers took 20 mins to arrive we knew we were in for a rough time. Apart from the slow service, our second round of beers arrived only slightly chilled. When we ordered food, we had 2 of our choices declined... More
