We stopped off here for a drink and a pre dinner snack and it was absolutely lovely - great food, lovely glass of white wine to accompany the sun setting. Would recommend.

Surely, You would like the design and chic furniture. But concidering the prices - the value is not so great. Adding the construction noises from a nearby pier - You wont feel disappointed if You just proceed to a different venue.

After we sat to see the pier die down from its busy day, with boats anchoring for the night, some coming in from... More

I was not impressed by this restaurant. We could have had the same food for a fraction of the price. The view is not that great, its next to the pier which is a transportation hub (so this is like eating dinner next to a bus station). I asked what was in my appetizer and the waiter couldn't tell me... More

Lovely location, food good, steaks delicious, more expensive than other places but one visit is a must. I enjoyed the table sat in the sand with the view of the beach and pier. Recommended

Table in the sand directly on the beach with white tablecloth - looks marvellous! Food can be very spicy to European taste.
