A lovely location along the promenade, we sat outside so we could people watch, the staff were lovely really friendly and the food was amazing, the tuna steak was by far the best I've ever eaten. deserts were really nice, but having such a wide range of choice was lovely and an English version menu was great. Not a cheap... More

Ate here twice because the GF is Vegi and they had enough choice here for her for a second visit. Food was good, service too. Location was excellent for the area. Would recommend trying it :-)

Lovely food & lovely staff. Again couldn't fault this place, fine dining quality but a fair price. I would most definitely come back to this restaurant.

Have visited this restaurant many times over past years.A very warm welcome is offered to all guests. Food and wine is very good and is served by jovial staff. Prices may be slightly on high side but for atmosphere and service it is well worth it. Give them a try. I think you will enjoy it.

We ate with friends and and we had some steaks that were ok. It was not the cheapest restaurant. It lacked any pzazz and I was just thoroughly underwhelmed. One of our party had salmon but said that it had some kind of cheese on which made it taste strange. She was not very well the next day and thought... More

We have been going to Clippers for over 15 years never had a bad meal I think our favourite is fillet steak with pepper sauce, the owner always takes the order and we prefer to sit inside this lovely air conditioned restaurant, a must for a special occasion
