We had a xmas group evening . The meals were great from a set menu. Always good value here. Great outlook over the marina and well trained staff.

We frequent this restaurant often, but the meal last night was extremely disappointing. My husband ordered whitebail fritters for a main and one had been burnt. His side salad was drenched in dressing. My lamb tenderloins were overcooked - the meat had no pinkness whatsoever...More

Great to get to a restaurant that has a large seafood selection. There was a good variety, but I mixed and matched as I was there as a solo diner. Enjoyed the calamari entree and the scallop extras. Service was friendly.

Generous servings, friendly staff and good food presented well. We had fish of the day which was served on a delicious mushroom risotto and with tasty salad. Fish was ok and there was plenty of it but it was a bit ordinary.

Service was very average, waitress was trying to rush us and did not meal check, nor replace our empty water bottles. Food was okay but over priced, not worth returning.
