Fascinating drinks. We enjoyed the "Wkik Waki Woo". Our server was an absolute delight. We had very unhurried service which allowed us to enjoy the view she answered all of our tourist questions. We ate too much but found the food to be good. We couldn't finish the huge servings so had it packaged for home.

My partner had the breakfast burrito and didn't need to eat until dinner time as the serving was so large. It was also a very tasty burrito. It... More

the view here is great but the service was the slowest I have experience at a restaurant. my omelette was cooked in vegetable oil instead of butter or virgin olive oil. It was all that I could taste. The guy at the bar was very nice though.

This is an inexpensive place to have lunch over the water. We didn't stay for the night life but it gets rocking with live music.

We enjoyed eating here outdoors on the deck. We had fish and chips as well as shrimp and chips. The service was good considering they were really busy and a little short-handed. The food was delicious and hot and were quite tasty coupled with a beer. Enjoyed that we could look out over the bay and watch the boats, kayaks... More
