Lovely place to sit and watch the world go past. Good food and quick service. Decent table settings. Park in center city or at coastal walkway and walk across. Usually make a booking but can just take your chances too.

Delicious food, service was not bad, expensive meals but not extortionate, would recommend for a special occasion if you're feeling rich.

Had breakfast here and must thank the waiter for his excellent service and attention to detail with our (fussy) order. His good humour was refreshing. All our meals were great and the views across the water are very well worth the stop off.

Good options and well presented. Special family meal and not disappointed with food. Only complaint is I prebooked in part to have a glas of champagne to celebrate but on arrival was told only prosecco available. Best not to advertise what is not on offer.
