Two in our party had the snapper special... More

Loved our dinner last night. We both had versions of chicken - which were moist and tasty. The licorice icecream dessert was a great experience! Friendly service made for a casual but comfortable experience! Thank you!

Who ever thought of beetroot and coconut as a base for squid? Or licorice ice - cream? Both were exquisite. Beautifully presented and executes. First class for every dish. Thanks.

The menu and wine list were immediately available and advice given. The wine was served promptly and kept cool in a bucket. All the dishes were well presented, ingredients excellent and perfectly cooked. Gustos presented... More

My daughter and I found this to be the best meal out. The service was excellent, very prompt and courteous. The meals were superb and cooked to perfection. The spices and garnish just right. A great view of the harbour topped it off. Definitely coming back.
