We ate here on our last night. My husband and teenage daughter shared the seafood platter and found the food delicious and the proportions generous. The location is great and the staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful.

Excellent restaurant, with good sea & marina views. Enthralling and mouthwatering menu food composition and presentation second to none. I had an unforgettable veal to appease any food gourmet lover..... Maybe a bit dear but certainly worth every penny. The service is friendly efficient but not pushy . The view is worth a million dollars especially at sunset.

We ordered off the menu - there was a buffet to choose as well, but we liked the look of the menu - and we were all very satisfied. The food was great, but what really stood out was the... More

I had the pleasure of dining in at North this week, and as a local I was amazed I hadn't been here sooner. The meal was perfectly cooked and the waiter ( chris) was patient and amazing. Due to having a gluten and dairy free diet I am unable to eat a lot of meals on most menu's, but Chris... More

Firstly I arrived at 8:05pm when my booking was for 8:00pm and the table was not even cleared from the previous dinners however their were several free tables around but we were made to wait for it to be...
