We took a short taxi trip from the hotel to dine here. We had been here before and it was just as great as we both remembered. Very tasty food and decent portions too. We had steak and seafood, delicious. Very nice staff too, we were impressed again and will be back.

Returned to the Harbour Restaurant this evening for my wife's birthday. Yet again the experiance was top class. The food, wine, atmosphere and staff are fantastic. Try a speciality coffee after dinner. You will not be disappointed. 10 out of 10.

This restaurant/pub was decorated all in old wood. Besides the wonderful atmosphere, the fish and chips we had were delicious. We were waited on right away. Very efficient here.

Nothing is a problem, the staff can make you pretty much anything you want to eat, within reason, which is good if you have little ones who are fussy about their pizza toppings, very reasonably priced also. No reservations necessary and you will always get a seat.

We ordered starters of garlic mushrooms, mussels, fish gratin and they were all delicious, our main course was steak for some, chicken &... More

Hadn't been here for a year or two (as it is almost always fully booked) but still absolutely superb. Prawn gratin and a medium-rare fillet steak done to perfection.

The service was rushed and unfriendly atmosphere. The food was so so. Although there was a nice view from upstairs, there was no ac and it was extremely warm with no air circulation. More like a get in and get out feel to it.
