We had to sit in as the weather wasn't quite up to snuff but the view was still amazing. The staff was very pleasant and the meal was well worth the price. On a nice sunny day this place would be an amazing place to visit. Wouldn't hurt to check it out when you're in town a few days.

We had a fabulous dinner here the other night. Best view in town and excellent food and service. Right in the center of town and after we went for a walk on the boardwalk.

The staff at the hotel desk recommended this restaurant in the hotel. It was as good as they said. Excellent food, a fairly varied menu, pleasant staff and a great view. A nice place, as well, to enjoy a drink after walking on the beach. The locals eat here too! We had breakfast here as well.

The good - the food was delicious, the view spectacular, atmosphere relaxed. The bad, slow service, it isn't the cheapest meal, $30 per person buffet on Canada day.

We stayed in the hotel for three days, and ate here a couple times ; the first time was late one evening, we had been out, but stopped in for a glass of wine as a nightcap. The service was friendly, the wine selection decent, and the view was magnificent. We also had breakfast there the next morning ...standard fare,... More

We were staying at this hotel for the weekend and had just had such a long beach walk that we had no energy to go anywhere else. We were pleasantly surprised. The steak was cooked perfectly to our requirements and the seasonal vegetables were varied and plentiful.The whole restaurant looked out over the beach which was stunning as the sun... More

I recently had lunch with a group of friends at this Bistro. The setting is lovely and although very busy that day, the service was excellent. The menu has a good variety and prices are comparable to similar venues. I will definitely be returning. Their dinner menu looks good...my husband and I will be checking it out soon.

The food itself was average, but the wait time was ridiculous. And to top it off the appetizer actually got delivered after the main course. Way too few wait staff, and even though the head waitress did come and apologize it certainly did not seem sincere.

They were out of a number of the items on the menu and they only had one server. Waits for food and drinks were significant.

We had Sunday lunch there and we were greeted and taken to our table looking out onto the water. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive to our needs. The choices on the menu were good. I had the Shrimp sandwich and salad that was stuffed with shrimp and my wife had the big salad and coconut prawns. It was fresh... More
