Good restaurant!

Went there last night: very nice spot 'above' the sea with nice views. Food was very nice. My husband had the Hickery ribs which we're just perfect! Had a bottle of Prosecco which was very good too! After the main course the waitress forgot about us and didn't ask if we'd like desert or coffee... read more

It is currently 22.40 and we are 2 and a half hours into our meal. We have waited one hour for our mains to be served. The fresh fish was good, the pizza uncooked. We are still waiting for the waiter to clean our table, and bring our dessert menu. In the meantime the owner decided to have an argument... More

The biggest advantage is the fact that its a fully gluten free restaurant with no risk for cross contamination and to be able to order ANYTHING off the menu is such a luxury (especially the chinese part). Food was very good although a bit slow. We were a big group where only one is coeliac and everyone enjoyed the food.

The restaurant is very nicely positioned at the seafront, a bit off the main promenade so it's quiet and you can dine looking at the splendid view of the bay. You can choose between italian and chinese food, which is a bit strange combination. I did not try the chinese food there, had pasta and "fish of the day" which... More

One of the best restaurants serving Gluten free on the island. The view is fantastic just off the sea shore. Waiting staff very friendly. The food is excellent.

I'm going to begin my review by stating the shock I had on arriving home to see so many bad reviews of this restaurant. I'm so glad I hadn't read before I went as a lot of these reviews will be very damaging to this restaurant, however everyone is open to write about their experience and here is mine. We... More

Very good Chinese restaurant. One of the best meals of our stay. Also all the food in this restaurant is glutinous free.

We sat down in this restaurant and were ignored for quite some time but in the meantime watched many people not finish their meal and look decidedly unhappy at their choice. Consequently we got up and walked out without being served having been in the restaurant for some time.

We looked forward to eating at this restaurant, as me and my partner are staying in the area for 6 months and liked the sound of the menu and location. on getting there we didn't get greeted and went to find a table, the first 2 in prime areas were reserved so had to site the other side. (these tables... More

Dear Sir, I am very disappointed by this review as there is a misunderstanding somewhere. First of all the menus that you where served there was no salads listed on. Also all the food was eaten and you only complained when you where given a wrong bill which I presented it to you myself and instead of billing a pint... More

Although we do not have a gluten allergy we were tempted to try this restaurant as their Chinese menu looked good. Not disappointed! Friendly service, can sit inside or outside.
