The service is exemplary and Martin and his wife always make you feel so welcome and take great care to ensure you have an enjoyable time. I have never tasted anything like the amazing seafood pancake and always have that as my... More

Went with my wife for her birthday and it was great. A warm welcome, great service and excellent food. What more can you ask for. We have been here several times and hope to go again in the near future.
