Utterly pathetic lunch. The menu is unimaginative and basic. The food presented was even worse than expected. The quality of the ingredients is nowhere near worth the price charged. The restaurant has an extraordinary view and has the potential to be the best establishment in...More

Nice view over the bay. Relaxed atmosphere and the best cocktails. Friendly and helpful staff. The sunset from the balcony is amazing.
