Went on spec to find the place full, buit the lovely waiting staff made us feel at home until a table was avaliable. The food was excellent and the service friendly and efficient. We ate and drank very well and then went for a stroll on the beach opposite as the sun went down.

We had to sit outside due to a large booking inside, the staff payed no attension to us out there, they supposed to have a bar but no one new how to mix drinks, some sort of heating outside would have been nice, only two of us ended up eating as we thought it was pretty bad service.

Beautiful location & excellent freshly cooked food. We had the ribs which were so tender & delicious. The fish & chips were as good as any we'd had in NZ.
