We have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here on different occasions. The staff is lovely and great sea view location. Food is delicious. The only thing letting it down is the toilets are rather smelly and dingy and need a good clean!

Lunch with friends. Great atmosphere, food and wine. It was very easy to ignore the time and enjoy the company with attentive but unobtrusive staff.

A really nice outlook, very good service, average food. The Salmon entree was delicious the main was Pan Fried fish which was a bit salty for both of us & my hubby loves salt. The desert was just ok, so overall I have to say we would not go back.

Small intimate restaurant based on the river side. Food was delicious. You can even watch the chef cook which for me is a plus.

We booked for son's birthday dinner and were well looked after with a really nice table and great view. Service was efficient and although our waitress lacked knowledge of wines another one stepped in to help. Good quality of food - a little light on the seafood options given their marketing. Overall a good experience.
