Burger ok but shrimp cocktail didn't have much flavour and the fish tacos were not very nice. There are good views of the harbour but then there are a number of restaurants here which do. I would not recommend.

We went here for lunch following our Whale Watching trip. The restaurant was very clean, the staff was friendly and efficient. They have a nice children's menu as well as plenty of fresh and enjoyable items for all appetites. Vegetarians-try the Harvest Salad. It is awesome! Vegans, the salad is made fresh when you order, so no trouble to ask... More

We sat in the bar and had cocktails while watching a soccer match on the TV's in that area. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly even though he had plenty of other customers to keep him busy. The crab cakes were moist and had lots of crab as opposed to stuffing. The sauce that was under them was yummy... More

Cosy restaurant overlooking Morro Rock and a small anchorage. Food was excellent...had fish and chips, mussels, and clam chowder with garlic toast. All items were served hot and portions were very generous. Would definitely go back, and would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.
