Take in the expansive ocean views from our incredible beachfront location while enjoying our fresh, tasty food in a vibrant and fun atmosphere. Our bar specialises in local wines and beer and has an impressive range of exotic cocktails. We combine two of life’s great pleasures, being by the ocean and enjoying a delicious meal in the company of good friends.
