Highly recommend Mobys delicious tender steaks and tasty crumbed calamari! Warm cosy fire and the sound of the waves add to the ambiance. Thank you Mathew for your friendly hospitality and good humor.

This Restaurant is situated right on the Beach with breathtaking views over the ocean. It has a typical coastal fisher town theme with decor to suit. Seafood offered and served is big portions, well priced and delicious. Staff are friendly and very helpful.

This place is right on the beach and serves good seafood. We were a group of us for dinner. I recommend booking in advance since the place can actually fill up. The environment is pretty casual and the view is very nice as well.

Nice enough restaurant. We had lunch there. Casual and relaxed sitting upstairs. Slightly shabby like a beach shack! There were about 12 of us and we all had fish of one description or another and one or two hamburgers. Everybody had a good meal. The...More
