    Really friendly service, but food is way over priced and quite average sadly. Toilets are disgusting, uncleaned and stink. Perhaps they could employ a cleaner? Sadly the over priced average food came back up with the foul stench.

    What a great place to go and celebrate a special event or catch up with friends. This place is so relaxed and peaceful. Excellent service and wonderful menu matches the vista that surrounds you. Dining on the balconies a must. Will definitely be back.
