Good - with reservations

This restaurant certainly looks impressive, with crisp, white tablecloths and smartly dressed waiters and the food is certainly edible, but, in my view, it is not good enough to warrant its premium prices.

Now this is a great place to eat, it is next door to the love boat and it was fantastic, the star of the show for me is the chef that makes the bread and brings it out to the table, always smiling. The waiters are all friendly and always smilling, they will pick you up or drop you off... More

The place is very friendly. There is someone in sight making the bread etc., The kitchen is in view from the tables at the side. The food was good the staff were very efficient without being over bearing. We unfortunately only had two visits. It was one of the best restaurants we were in. Would recommend it
