We ordered a battered fish and chips and a yummy rosemary and garlic bread. Yum...Yum.....Yum and good value for money. All eaten while looking at a beautiful view of Onetangi Beach.

Food did not take long at all given it was quite busy around 3pm. We ordered a steak sandwich and a fried chicken burger, both were excellent and we were stuffed. Good prices too given the portions and that is a tourist location.

Brilliant beach front cafe. Great selection of cabinet and menu food; fresh, local fish including scallops and oysters. The service is superb, very attentive and there's a good selection of beer and wine. Highly recommended - then go for a wander along the islands longest beach!

The servings are very generous here and they really know how to use a fryer (in a good way)! The setting is lovely, right next to a very beautiful beach. Servers are friendly and generally efficient.
