Not sure if it was because they were working using the generator as the power had gone out but the carpet bagger steak was awful. There was also an awful stagnant smell which I think was from the small pond outside. Staff were friendly but service was poor and slow.

You appear to be inside but look up and the stars are watching you. Good food at a good price. I had Baracuda one night and Butter fish the other. Preferred the Butter fish but both really well filleted and no bones.

Food was limited, staff were limited to so rushed around, bringing parts of the same order at differnt times - ended up leaving half way through, and walking to Al Baba's for an excellent steak, and brilliant service.

Lovely fresh food in a lovely environment. Friendly staff. Not very quick service but worth waiting for when it arrived.

The food here is generally good, and very well presented. The ambience is relaxed, though service can be rather slow. Slightly worrying that the only stomach upsets we had on holiday followed meals at this restaurant.

Missed this jem on our previous trip to this resort, our loss. Really high standard of food and a varied choice. Found several good restaurants this holiday but Captains Table was the best. Don't miss out on this place.
