This was a great location to grab a coffee, with an outside sitting area. The bathrooms were much like a maze, but very well kept. I liked the clean environment, and the incredible service. Close to the beach, and would surely return.

Ordered seafood platter, mussels and Turner is clearly off and smells. Complained and turn down replacement offer. They still charged us full price, queried the bill and offered only 10% discount but no apology. Very disappointed.
