Went here last night. The first thing to hit me was the spectacular view through the large panoramic window at the back of the restaurant over looking the harbour. The friendly waitresses greeted me and didn't pounce on me until I had time to peruse the menu. My starter of Portobello Mushroom... read more

We sat outside but went inside to order, the young woman behind the bar was a little rude, we'd never been before and didn't realise there was a waitress outside but she made us feel like idiots for not knowing this and her tone of voice was just full of attitude, she was are only minor complaint though the lady...

We had a light lunch here one day last week and it was fine. The service was a bit hit and miss but the staff were very pleasant.

After our boat trip we came here for lunch and how lovely it was. We had seats right next to the window looking out over a very calm sea. A very nice menu with lots of choice and polite friendy staff. The food was tasty and fresh and beautifully presented. Clean and fresh decor a very pleasant experience. Well worth... More

What a fantastic evening! Everybody went out of their way to make our evening and meal so very special. The staff were so kind throughout the night. Excellent food ( and a superb view looking over the sea watching the dolphins jump!!) Thank you all- really appreciated everything. Chris and SImon :))

My wife and I had dinner here one night. The menu is a good mix of traditional english food and some pasta dishes. I had the 'St Davids Chicken' which was chicken breast served in a leek, cream and cheese sauce. The dish was very simple but the chicken was cooked well and was moist and tender. The sauce was...

The window seats are very popular, and there is a constant game of musical chairs as customers move tables as they become vacant. There is a reasonable chance of seeing Dolphins from here, and the food's not bad either! Prices are reasonable, service friendly and efficient and there is outdoor seating too.

We were staying here for a week and ate out here 6 times. The food is first class and the service is great. We will most definitely be going back. See you soon.
