Found this restaurant as it advertised gluten free options. We weren't disappointed. Very good selection on offer and staff very attentive. Food was excellent. And if you fancy a cheeky cocktail , variety and price were also very good. Highly recommend.

You need to get to the waterfront which is about 300 metres long and walk along it. You will find the restaurant. Just look at the names of the restaurants as you walk along because there are many others!
