We were in town for one night, visiting from the UK. The food and drink were really tasty and very affordable, Service was great, it did get a bit busy when we were leaving so took a little time getting out bill, but honestly that wasn't enough to cause any issues.

We had an excellent view that not everyone will have in this restaurant. It was very nice--even at night with a bit of rain. The service was very attentive, but you might find it a to be a bit of a slow pace if you are in a hurry. We were in no hurry and liked the slow pace of... More

Food was great, but the service was terrible, waited for ever for our drink never mind the fact that we order a jug and got a jar and where still charged the same price. There was no manager or owner making sure that everything was OK. The food is not very cheap, but was very good, value for money, hmm... More

Had dinner here while staying at the Paxton just a walk away. The location is convenient and the food is really tasty. The staff were friendly and service was attentive but not invasive. The menu has many options from meat, to vegetarian, to fish. It seems that there is always place so walk-ins are welcomed. The view over the bay... More

The best gourmet steak in town at an affordable price, combined with a view over the harbour, great ambiance (no noise!), professional service, parking on doorstep. Probably the best kept secret of value for money in PE.

We chose this place as it was close to our hotel, within walking distance. It seemed promisingly busy. We ordered some wine and then waited. They took our food order and then we asked about our drinks. No joy. We asked again and again. It turned out that a large group were situated on a long table in front of... More

We chose here as it was close to the hotel and the first appearance seemed good. There was a group in one corner and along one wall and the place was fairly busy. We were given a nice table and the menus. We ordered a nice bottle of wine and started to choose. They took our food orders and after... More

Went for coffee. The atmosphere was laid back and quiet with the patio looking out over the water. The menu looked pretty good and inexpensive. Wanted to return to try the breakfast, but my schedule didn't allow for a return visit.
