Lemon Butta is a delightful restaurant on the first floor with views over the sea. Service was very good and personal. Fishcakes were tasteful, queen prawns a good size and Calamari strips well flavoured with a delightful sauce. The Hake was soft and nicely battered. Better book if you want to find a table.

Very nice food in a great setting. They were very busy so in whale watching season you would need to book a table in advance

Went without booking the first night and were accommodated although they were very busy. So enjoyed the meal we booked for the following night. When we arrived, the booking had 'gone missing' and our table already allocated. An acceptable alternative was found, profuse apologies given together with a complimentary bottle of wine. Mistakes happen - it's how they are resolved... More

Their sushi is very good yet quite pricey. The setting is in a busy centre and it does not make for romantic dinner etc. It serves a niche market. Of late the service has not been great yet I would not label it as poor. I have good memories of previous experiences but always found it to be over priced.... More

Delicious food, easygoing service and atmosphere. The only thing which bothered me was lack of aircon and closed windows.

Excellent food and service. Waiters know their menu and their wine pairing is good. Fresh fish and lovely desserts. Only wish they would stay open a bit later.

Always enjoy this restaurant. Remember to book for dinner, they are very popular. Food is always fresh and best quality. Not the cheapest in town, but you pay for what you get.

If you ever have the time to eat at this restaurant order the linefish on the coals. It is a beautiful piece of fish excellently prepared over an open fire. I had mine with salad, but I will leave it to you to decide on your side dish. For dessert however their is no choice than to order the home-made... More
