Went for a takeaway and restaurant was very busy. Told I would have a 45 minute wait which wasn't a problem because we were on the campsite next door. Went back at alloted time and takeaway was ready. Food lovely and some different dishes on menu.

restaurant a bit quiet but food excellent on the couple of visits we had this week! Starters, mains, pilau rice and naan breads great. Service low key and friendly.

Just a short walking distance of the harbour. Excellent food and service. We arrived quite late, but even then they were ready to prepare us a great meal with a nice atmosphere
