“Overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Waited a long time and asked had they wine waiter just said yes and brought a bottle of undrinkable white wine. Sent back but next bottle wasn't much better. My lobster looked well brought out sizzling but turned out small and overcooked

“Food unedible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

Went there for dinner one night. Location can't be beat, but the food was horrible. My friend and I both had fish skewers - the veg on the skewers were undercooked but the fish was so overcooked it was rock hard and dry. Such injustice to the fish! Unimpressed. :(
