The view was awesome, overlooking the sea. The service was good and the wine was a good price. A good place to meet people - very friendly. We didn't have dinner - only drinks!

My wife and I were the only ones to have supper on the rooftop the other night, and although the food took forever to be ready, we thoroughly enjoyed the neighbourhood's sights and sounds from our loftly perch.

During our stay the roof top restaurant was deserted and mostly dark. Perhaps the reason may have been because of its proximity to the sea and that the restaurant is elevated, the endless winds were just too annoying for someone to stay out.
