The food and service is good but both times we were seated inside and noise from the kitchen is terrible. The open plan along with wooden floors just jarred my nerves. On a nice day outside on deck would be better.

It was a little chilly but the decking was super cosy. Nice views, great service, delicious food; I read my book and was not hassled but definitely attended to by the wait staff; perfect! Am going again today for breakfast because it was so good!
