Super food, eccentric staff, very attentive but not over bearing. Location is stunning with beautiful views. My husbands prawn pil pil was stunning, super oil in which to mop the lovely home made bread. Highly recommended and worth a taxi ride.

I was looking forward to a lovely evening. It’s a super restaurant with great views. The staff are good. Tonight they were so busy, full to capacity, and possibly under staffed. I ordered the rack of lamb, pink. It was pretty raw. The outside was...More
