We went here after reading Trip Advisor reviews. We arrived 15 mins before opening and they allowed us to leave our pram at a table, go for a walk and come back once they had opened. We were dubious taking our three small children (aged 4, 3 and 1) there but the staff were great. The prawn and calamari skewers... More

Really enjoyed the dishes we ate at this restaurant, two reasonably priced pastas given the location and potential other options. Good customer service too, friendly staff.

We went with friends, adults and children . The seafood was excellent and I would recommend the mixed starter platter to share ( we had 2 between 7 - kids not so keen so plenty to go round). Good service and sitting on the quay you is a sight to behold!

service was friendly, prices were lower than the other restaurants in the area ( we compared from the listed menus). Food was fine enough, nothing special. But if price is what you want, then go here
