I am yet to eat here despite trying twice! Visited a few months ago with a friend on a very busy evening, the staff were quite busy going backwards & forwards with food, 2 told us they'd be back to seat us in a minute but didn't return & after 10 mins we decided if it took 15 minutes to... More

Service here was excellent very attentive but at the same time not imposing, and plenty of staff to attend to all the diners. The food was also delicious and very nicely presented too. We had CARPACCIO DI BRESAOLA, SPADA E GAMBERETTII as our starters & we both had Pizza for main (they were huge) & one of our desserts was... More

We normally go to the restaurants where we see the most diners, but this time we were fooled. The food was at best only average. We even had to ask a waiter for bread to bide the time. A pity because it is in such a nice location above the harbour marina.

Have to say we had a lovely pleasant surprise, friendly greeting, fresh warm bread at the table, friendly service, great fresh tasty food and good choice of drinks. Add the amazing view and it really is a great experience, well done la magnolia... More
