Had dinner last night at this restaurant after seeing a movie at portside and just felt like something light and not super gourmet.

At first glance the menu seemed a bit overpriced for a casual lunch, but the specials board, had Tuna Nicoise and a glass of house white for $15.90 so we thought it worth a try.

A nice place to sit an relax, eat ot just a coffee. A good range of foods to choose from. Can be expensive for a causual meal, so check the prices. You are paying for the location. Worth a look and a nice place to chill out and relax.

When I paid, I mentioned that our meals weren't the best. The cashier was a bit grumpy and had no problem... More
