Great place to pop in for a coffee or breakfast after a nice walk along the promenade. Also good for a drink in the evenings.

This spot is neatly tucked away but once found you know this is a top spot! Staff cannot do enough for you! The food that comes out of kitchen is brilliant. Prawn tempura is probably the best I have eaten! Highly highly recommend!!!

Great view of the sea and passing crowd. Excellent menu. Varied gin and beer offering. Nice relaxed vibe and service. Cherry on the top, a talented jazz ensemble. This has become a regular. Today I had the Portuguese chicken livers. Oooohh.

Atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. It has a prime spot near the Mouille Point lighthouse and should make more of it. Service was not impressive. Food - well leaves a lot to be desired. Starters - calamari la plancha was small, squid tentacles...More
