Absolute Waterfront Dining

From sit down dinners, to “just one drink” on the beach, book a table for any occasion. Choose from our inside brasserie with views from every table, or head outside to the thatched beach hut and beer garden where the kids have more room to roam. Our Brasserie kitchen is open 7 days (see service times below) and the Beach Kitchen is open on weekends serving pizzas, meat rolls and Tex-Mex favourites.




Guests can order food for any seating area. Just take a buzzer if you’re sitting outside.
