As far as I'm concerned this restaurant has never been good. The only good thing about it is the location which one would assume is what they've survived on. The food has in general been bad, bordering on inedible. Staff and management alike is arrogant and rude, as if they can't be bothered. Return the favour.

Nice place to while away a couple of hours in the sun at the waterfront. Food is reasonably priced and always pretty good. Service lacks a bit - Every time I've been there it always takes a while to get orders taken. If they worked on improving this it would be a great place to come more often.

Went here on a Tuesday night and it was nice and quiet. There weren't too many people. The food was delicious. The service was slow, and too many waitresses were waiting on us so they couldn't really keep up with what we wanted or what we had already had. They were mixing things up a bit. But overall the food... More

We had lunch here today. I had the chicken thai salad which was delicious and my husband had the seafood pizza which he enjoyed greatly. There was a brass band playing in the gazebo which was great to listen to. Service was okay.

Its not small at all. We've... More

I have only been there twice I found service slow. They have horrible Plastic Chairs. When order taken sadly they did not listen. My biggest Hate there were smokers outside on side walk tables lovely outlook onto the basin and Boats.

We have experienced inconsistant service and meal quality here. It is seldom that both excel, but it has happened occassionally. Interestingly, if the service and or meals are not "top Knotch", they have been at the opposite end of the scale.
