“Great restaurant / menu / views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Great restaurant, always busy so a sign that the food is good. Check the specials of the day - interesting selection. Varied menu / good wine list. Interesting feature - the kitchen can be seen whilst you are dining. On a beautiful day, outside seating is a must ...

“Lovely food and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

Our seafood platter was excellent. The nicest lobster I ever had. My son was raving about the pasta. Definitely worth a visit!

“Endangered Fish species”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

An excellent restaurant with excellent food,choice of wines ,friendly etc.My real concern was that their " line fish of the day" was rockcod.
All species of this fish are listed as "orange" and even "red". Meaning endangered.
The waitron had no idea what i was talking about .I would suggest management 1. not serve endangered species. 2. eduacate their waitrons. I ended up with steak which was excellent but whole episode left a bad taste.

“arrogant and bad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

i went 3days ago to this eatery and had just bad food. The calamari heads were so oily i could have run my car on it for month. The lamb rack was ordered medium and came well done and all that after the waiter told my wife she should eat her ostrich fillet no more than medium rare. Get the simple thinks right first before you tell your guest how to eat there meat. Had to go home and cook my own dinner what a sad restaurant.
