Great atmosphere on a warm night sitting on the balcony. Staff were very professional and the Pork Belly in Master stock was amazing! Very reasonably priced food and drinks!

Eaten here three times now. Very consistent. Great friendly staff (mainly foreign back packers) who know their stuff. The view from the sweeping deck is great to sit back and enjoy a glass of vino. Good is good, not superb. Prices getting up there. Still worth the visit. I hear the cocktails are great.

I have eaten here many times. But I have to say that over the years it is not the same. The last time I ate there my meal was not good for the price charged. The best thing was my lemon daiquiri. The view is stunning.

Italian food with homemade care and attention. Had an excellent meal here and would definitely come back. We were taken care of by the lovely Sonia from France, you should ask for her if you come to this restaurant!
