Plenty of parking, food and drink very nice as was the service. Also do beer and wines. Beach is nice but rocks and stones, very sheltered unless wind from south. Road very narrow with passing places but well worth the trip.

Went to this lovely place in 2016 / 2017 /2018 beautiful food and great BBQ in the evening, staff very good. Whilst talking to one staff member she said stop talking and tell me what you hear, the only sounds you could hear was the waves it was so peaceful. The staff are lovely, the food is beautiful and the location and scenery are so lovely that a wait during busy periods is a pleasure. We will be back in 2019

We’ve been visiting this charming little place,which is nestled away idyllically just off the beaten (coastal) path, for over twenty years both as a couple (myself & my husband) or with our children. It is as beautiful and serene now as it was when we first started visiting. It overlooks the sea and is gently surrounded by the most beautiful plants and trees and the relaxing sound of birdsong and the waves lapping against the rocks adds another definite plus to the whole atmosphere. Whether you are a foot worn walker desperate for sustenance and a rest before continuing the coastal path; a family wanting a break between rock hopping or playing with the kids on the beach; or simply a couple (like myself and my husband) wanting a hustle and bustle-free cuppa and a lite bite on return from driving down the coast to shops - this is the perfect place. In all the years we have been visiting, the staff have always been friendly and helpful, the food is always lovely and fairly priced (and freshly made to order - which makes it well worth it if you have to wait a little while) and the place is always spotlessly clean. It’s rated a 10 out of 10 from us.
