seafood platter is great

Me and my parents had a seafood platter for TWO but all of us still got very full...This is a very good restaurant, and you can get mussels, oysters, crabs, fish, prawns and bugs (and I cannot remember) and fresh fruits! Everything was yummy, and the staff are very nice.

This was a very good place to stop for a bite to eat. We were in the shade, the beer was cold and the food was very good. What more do you want. A tasty and generous mushroom risotto, fettuccine carbonara with a shared rocket salad were fine fare indeed. The staff were very helpful and the beer and wine... More

I would say it is ordinary Italian restaurant, similar dishes that you can find everywhere around the world. Pricey but recommend for breakfast lots choices and massive portions for good price :) slow service :/ waited too long

We came here on Wednesday 25th Feb for a nice breakfast as my friend was leaving town that day. I had eaten here before for dinner and the food was okay, nothing especially great but pleasant enough to come back. Well never again now. My friend and her mother arrived about 15minutes before I did and had ordered themselves coffee... More

A nice and cheap place for a pizza or a pasta in front of the water or for a nice seafood platter. The desserts are homemade and awesome (sticky date pudding & white chocolate creme brulée! !)

I came here for their "early bird special" with friends. Between three of us we split the bruschetta trio and a tropical pizza. It was only $12 a person when we paid the bill, which is the only way I would recommend eating here. The dishes are way to pricey for one person! I had the creme brûlée for dessert.... More

Great location, very nice staff. Food was OK, nothing special, tasty but very expensive. Pasta was delicious but no parmesan ...:-)

Dining here was quite an experience! First, we couldn't get a table for seven. After MUCH confusion, we were seated at two tables--one for two and one for five. They put two tables together for six, but couldn't add another smaller table to accommodate all seven of us. So we separated. Then when we were ordering, we were told "I... More

We went for Sunday breakfast. The view is fantastic and we loved the space. When I go out for breakfast I am always keen on eggs benedict but was disappointed to find that the benedict was ham only, no other option and on an english muffin. The breakfast came out and I was most unhappy with the hollandaise, this is... More
