Casual vibe, right on the beach

The food was excellent and beautifully cooked. We were assured that all the seafood is bought fresh daily, which was reflected in the seafood basket my husband had. Tasty and tender, so different from the frozen versions served in clubs etc! I had scallops in bacon, with a delicious ginger cream... read more

Value for money. Good food. The best view, looking out on the water! It's definitely worth a visit. Try the Alaskan Crab pasta.... oysters

Been thrice or more to this wonderful 'floating' restaurant. Each time I've enjoyed great tastes, friendly service and that dine aboard feeling. I relish the seafood there, enjoy the ample glass of wine and feel lucky to be able to dine upon the sea. The restaurant sits on a pier of its own so you are sometimes above lapping bay... More

I had the calamari and chips and my partner had the scallops wrapped in bacon. The food was fresh and tasty. The staff are friendly and attentive and it was an over all good experience. I think that they have changed hands since the last time I was here and the prices seemed to have come down. Overall a great... More

Have been 3 times previously, but not recently. Felt as soon as we walked in things weren't the same as prior visits. Upon arrival 3-4 staff aimlessly walking/looking around whilst we stood and waited to be seated. Finally asked "are you ok", and we requested table for 2. We were not even shown to the table - but pointed in... More

Terrible long wait! Had been here before and thought to book this for a special family event, booked three weeks in advanced, and called up during the week to confirm. First call I was placed on hold for 15minutes, to which I realised they had forgotten I was on hold while they looked for the bookings book. Then I called... More
