“Great View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Invited here for lunch with family. Service average and food uninspiring. Quite disappointing considering the spectacular views and setting of the restaurant.

“SETTING SETTING!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

One of the best settings in town. On waters edge next to the harbour wall. Rustic atmosphere. The Pirates Breakfast and the Combo baskets come highly recommended. Good value for money.

“OK for a light snack”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

So the location is pretty good, but the choice and price of food/drinks were a little steep. My husband and I visited many years previously without a little one and it was ok. Its not somewhere I would bring children, as there is no where for them to play, and the seating arrangement outside is too cramped. There are also no changing facilities for those with little ones.

“Will not go back any time soon”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Absolute disaster. Use to be a lovely place to visit with delicious hake and chips. Not the same. Waiter forgot my husbands order. By the time his meal eventually came it looked like left overs and the whole family already finished their meal. Not recommended
