“Real nice lunch in the sun in mid January”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We have walked by this place dozens and dozens of times. We ate there on a wonderfully sunny mid January weekday when we wanted to get out of the office; Chose it because it had great afternoon sun. We ate with one of our daughters, and we all liked our mains. A couple of nice glasses of wine. The server (? owner) had great charm and totally bilingual. Will be back.

“Gorgeous restaurant, food, service, location, everything!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The service was quick, friendly, helpful. Food was amazing, I had the octopus salad and it was lovely. Waiter was extremely helpful when I couldnt understand the menu. Granted, menu was on a chalkboard which he brought over to us, but thats hardly a factor when compared with the variety of it. Maybe its changed all the time, which I find encouraging. Overall, would eat here again & definitely recommend.

“Very good food with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Stopped for a light lunch. I had an excellent salad nicoise. Husband had a nice Caesar salad with chicken. Enjoyed the beautiful view over the harbor. Watched all the cruise pax schlepping back and forth and we were so glad to be sitting in this lovely spot instead.

“Attentive staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Looks a little like a bar that does snacks but is actually a reasonable restaurant.Staff are friendly and helpful.
We ate here twice, the first time my wife had on of the suggestions du jour of prawn cooked in Pernod.Generous and very tasty it was her favourite meal of the fortnight.
Their home made skinny chips were great.
A little tired inside, I believe that they are planning to refurbish over the winter.
