The tables outside were set and busy, but to mind my August evenings are far too cold to be sat outside. We were with our two teenage daughters,... More

As soon as we walked in we were all struck by the atmosphere it was semi dark lots of full tables a real feel like a London Put but up market. The reason for the low light was so we could all take in the stunning view of the harbor at night. Service was spot on attentive but not intrusive.... More

After seeing the menu and the prices I did go in hoping it would be really good food with an even better view. In the end I forgot about the view as the food was so good. I couldn't fault much. All in all it was a great night. Would recommend you try this place if you haven't been. Don't... More
