“stunning sea view and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Very good service from the waiting staff, who were timely and helpful. The food was generally very good. The confit of duck main being the highlight, rich and delicious and a good size. The bluenose cod main being a bit disappointing (not seasoned enough and the gnocchi and tomato sauce tasted bought in) but still a good sized portion at least. The desserts were good, with a very good wine selection and coffee making overall a good experience. Keep it up guys!

“Great night out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We had a group meal here on Saturday evening and it was just perfect - the food was wonderful and they had a great selection, even on the set menu. Nothing was too much trouble, from the initial booking (thanks Cath) to the end of the meal (thanks Tom & Co.!). We will certainly recommend!

“Great location for a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We have eaten here and it's a regular stop for a drink, very friendly staff and good location. We have eaten here on a Sunday several weeks ago. The food was OK, menu is really way to big.

“Beach front location and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

A fantastic location alongside the board walk and with lovely sea views. A broad menu with set price brackets depending on size of meal you were after. Casual dining, good food but wine by the glass was rather expensive. Service was very good.
