Good Sunday lunch

A very pleasant experience with a good choice of food at a reasonable price. The food is well presented and tasty. Service was fine, but they would need more waiters if it was crowded.

This restaurant on the harbour caters for all tastes, from sandwiches and moules frites up to sophisticated menus.

Our menu was good value and there were some nice touches, such as ground coriander in a scallop... More

Good restaurant that is not a rip off as some along the quay, Well priced and good quality on a well rounded menu. Fish especially good. Service can be hectic at busy times.
