Good for a drink and delicious pizza. Hard to get a table sometimes! Good views over park and menu was reasonably priced and they had proper wine glasses!

Great little pub on the edge of the marina. Good drinks selection, clean and friendly. Drinks over a few nights and settled on Snacks of Mexican. Food was dry - beef tacos and nachos weren't much better. Didn't have a proper meal but the meals we seen being delivered looked good at the very least.

We came back for dinner another time and also liked it. The menu is quite diverse, reasonably priced and the meals are also good. I wouldn't call it... More

Looking for an easy quick meal then this can fit the bill. The fish and chips were good, spanish maceral was a little dry and my wife had Thai beef salad that was full of flavour and very tender. A great dish.

5-7 everyday happy hour. Pretty good pricing. Would come back more if they had food specials to pair it with. Very busy but a nice atmosphere!

There's no breakfast items.. But We knew that before going. We ordered the pulled pork tapas - this was quite tasty. We also ordered chicken burger - I didn't really enjoy this. Nothing special about it and wouldn't reorder. Finally we also had the calamari ceasar salad. This was a nice change from the regular chicken Ceasar. Overall though we... More

Lovely place to sit and people watch along the esplanade. People were really friendly, so easily found conversation with those around me. The sun was setting as I was enjoying my drinks and could see the airplanes taking off and landing over the ocean. Great food and good beer selection; although I was told they had happy hour deals and... More
