“Just Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

So here is a classy,stylish restaurant - light and airy decor, fabulous food and attentive, knowledgable staff and fabulous food. This is the way eating out is supposed to be! The kitchen is open plan and was buzzing, again, with professional and polite staff. If you want a happy relaxed eating experience with great fresh food and a setting to die for, this is the place be.

“really enjoyed our lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We had a fabulous lunch on the terrace ( you need to book to get a table on the terrace), lovely atmosphere, great view, friendly efficient staff. We tried the octopus salad and loved it. The Oysters were amazing, tasted the Spaghetti vongole and they were cooked to perfection. Our son ate all his fish and chips!! The Island Mojitos were yummy. Highly recommended

“Nice but a little hum-drum.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

A little under whelming. Hard to put a finger on my lack of emotion. Food was void of wow and lacking technique. Service was adequate. Good fit out. It was just nice!

“Fabulous meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Easy to find, and recommended by someone in iSite, this was a real find. The service was excellent and the food delicious - fish of the day, together with the loveliest shoestring fries, sprinkled with parmesan and rosemary!
