We are visiting J Bay for a few days and found this Gem right on the beach. The service, the food, the feel of the place, the fires, all added up to an exceptional experience.

Nice scenery & great service.. Food was good but came a bit cold.. Also the tempura oysters not recommended but the fresh oysters were good. Bit pricey for the SQ items but reasonable on the other menu items. Seems like fish & chips with a...top up gave the best value. Closes early so go a bit earlier to enjoy sunset and drinksMore
