I visited this restaurant with one of my best friends and we were given a lovely seat by the window looking onto the water.

Wasn't really impressed with food or service. Not my kind of restaurant. Maybe that's down to me but I still thought it was average

Went for dinner and found a fairly extensive menu. Pasta, pizza, seafood. I had the Bantry seafood linguini - great. Fish and chips weren't on the menu but we're on the specials board; large serving and great taste.
