I noticed there was pool table and if you go earlier, a buffet dinner. I can't comment on the dinner... read more

This has a great view to look at while enjoying yummy food. Restaurant is a bit small if you are with a group but overall nice food and friendly staff.

We asked for and ordered local fish and got a kids meal of processed fish fingers. Hope the new owners are better.

We were so disappointed had been in Raro 12 days and tried booking for last night , fully booked. Popular place with live music on a Wednesday. Next time it's a must and book early.

My friend and I went up for the $3 Happy Hour and decided to stay for the $20 Pizza Buffet special - WOW so glad we did. It's a great deal and the food is delicious. Only wish we'd found out about it sooner so we could've gone a few times while we were there.

After reading reviews here I wasn't expecting much of the pizza buffet but was very pleasantly surprised! Quality and availability of pizza, pasta and salad was a sold 10! Staff was very friendly and the deck makes for a very nice surrounding.
