The out look was beautiful, shame about the SLOW wait on our meal.. Considering there was only 2 of us, it could have been a lot quicker. The deco is very outdated needs a ram up. Very slow night all round, such a shame in a top location

Fresh is best, & that's what you get ,With a Chef that knows how to cook a Steak,or be it Fish or shellfish, straight off the Trawler .Pleasant Decor,overlooking the main street attentive service makes for a pleasant dining experience.
