This was fabulous. Right next to the harbor, so beautiful views and priced super reasonably, the seafood was fresh and cooked perfectly, the portions very generous, definitely another highlight and highly recommended.

If barefoot, shorts and T-shirt is your style, Sea Gypsy is for you. Leave the tux at home. This is a great casual pub-style eatery if you just want to kick back with your friends. Maybe not the best place to impress the new love...More

Rustic sea side restaurant with views overlooking the water. Extensive menu with decent prices and good quality food. Service a little slow, but otherwise a reliable place for breakfast lunch or dinner.

Description
The Sea Gypsy Cafe is one of the most unique places that you will ever visit. We are situated on the water our oysters are hanging from a pole alive in the sea. We offer a warm friendly and welcoming experience. Great food good value. We offer not only seafood but also meats, chicken, vegetarian meals as well as burgers, toasties and pastas. Takeaways can be placed over the phone and delivered by delivery extreme. A shuttle service is also available if required at no extra cost to and from the shop. Come and join us we are people that care. Hope to see you soon. Kind regards Colin and Team.
