We had a lovely relaxed dinner at McLearys. The service was excellent and the dinner was beautiful. I had the chowder which was very creamy, the steak (it is giant) and the almond tart. Overall a beautiful meal.

Walking through the neighborhood, we popped in for a casual dinner. It's a small restaurant, but modern and welcoming. My husband had the Fish and Chips and I had the Risotto.

been here several times for lunch, liked the food, it was tasty fresh and will be liked by many. I would have rated excellent 5 stars if there was a bit of flexibility with the food, requesting something not to be added proved difficult so changed the dish and it was good

We were looking for a restaurant late in the evening after getting into town and they kindly let us in just before closing. We had two variants on surf & turf, both delicious and had a great relaxed evening. It was late when we left but we felt we could have stayed longer.

Ate here a few weeks ago and really enjoyed this restaurant. Nice food and good wine albeit a bit pricy but you get what you pay for. All 10 of our party enjoyed our meal and had no complaints. Staff were accommodating too and funny. Nice safe area too. Would go back.

We called in as a group of five on a busy day. The food was excellent and the service was first class yet unobtrusive. A thoroughly enjoyable meal was had by us all.
