I came here on vacation in 2011 and was impressed with the food, location and service. The view and menu are still great but the staff totally ignored me which was frustrating. I had to try to get their attention all the time to see the menu, order and ask questions.

We went for Sunday night dinner, one of us had the Sunday roast which was delicious and the other had steak which was beautifully cooked and tender. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed and service was good. During the day there is a wonderful view across the bay. Prices were reasonable and there is a special deal with the Sunday... More

Really good food (and drinks) at prices that were not much more than very mediocre food elsewhere. Decor is quite up-market, but they do not seem to mind less up-market clientele. They also have a reasonably priced kids menu which is a big plus!

4 of us went for a Sunday night dinner, stuck with the tapas and entrees, plus some cocktails. Everything more or less tasted the same, mainly deep fried, and nothing much grabbed our attention. Having said that, nothing was terrible either. So, just ok. Cocktails were good however ( piña coladas and marguerites) so perhaps try 3 cocktails each first,... More

Expensive but nice place to have brunch. It's the restaurant on the ground floor of Chantilly's on the Bay hotel. Food selection for breakfast was ok, nothing spectacular. But their coffee is good. I think it was Tanna coffee beans.

Perhaps the best breakfast venue in town. Other meals are also pretty good. The steaks are nice, and you'll be pleased with the nice view over the water. Wifi is free and fairly fast. A must.
