    Our waitress was very friendly and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. When there was a small issue with our food she dealt with it right away in a professional manner. A palatable experience. The view was lovely and so was our neighbouring diners. Would definitely come again.

    The restaurant was empty but yet we were sat right in front of the sun. The kids had to look away the whole time to avoid the sun in their eyes. The chefs were so unhelpful when asked for a substitute. Dont think we would go back.

    Young lady on front desk was great under pressure and very cheerful. Tables cleaned quickly. Food great. Only exception don’t get people to make their own pancakes. People were looking really confused and I gave it a miss. Overall good dining experience.

    Good variety for a breakfast buffet, although moving around is difficult when they are busy, as the space is cramped, no doubt to fit more tables in. Service is really poor. Guy cooking the eggs, did not know how to fry eggs ‘over easy’. Very slow to clean and turn tables over. Barista would not give my wife a mug to have tea in as ‘she did not have enough’. A rude unsympathetic response. Tea spoons had run out, and no one was doing anything to replace them. Ended up using a fork to stir. View spoilt by dirty windows. At least the food was good and fresh.

    Great variety of food including little churros and pastries whish was very nice, staff friendly and helpful just a few things let it down the temperature of the hot food could be hotter the little chipolatas (sausages) were a bit dry and the salt and pepper on the table were empty. Overall a great selection of food at a good price overlooking the ocean just a few things that need a little help has a good area if you have a group but a bit echoey for people with hearing problems.

    The food bit very slow to come out. There’s no flowers on table as shown in Ad. The sparkling water we thought was included in the meal. But the environment was great. The stuff was friendly.

    After being booked out with no guests available the previous day, our party of 4 on Boxing Day was almost on our own and consequently we received prompt almost exclusive service by all staff. Food was good, albeit somewhat (but understandably) expensive on this day.
