My partner and I had dinner here on Friday night. The staff were wonderful and extremely efficient. I ordered the Portuguese chicken, it was divine. My partner had the steak which he raved about for the rest of the weekend! Beautiful setting right on the water. Will definitely be back!

Loved the atmosphere. Chose a meal based upon the waitresses suggestions. Were not disappointed. Feel we could have chosen anything suggested and still would not have been disappointed.

From the location to the food and the staff, this place is great. Busy, had to wait a bit but who cares, enjoyed the view and my drink whilst waiting, the food was fantastic and I would return in a heartbeat. Prices exceptional considering the location, a real surprise and bonus.

We went there with my husband's colleagues a few weeks ago. The food was good, the steak I ordered was tender and tasty. I like the atmosphere and there were some people from different countries, which made the restaurant a bit more trendy.

Call ahead! We called a few days before and we only had 6:30 and 8:00 to choose from. We had the Prime Rib Eye (250g) w/ pepper sauce, Fillet of Tenderloin w/ red wine&chilli sauce, and Portuguese Chicken. The Prime Rib was cooked perfectly at medium rare. Very juicy. Had the mashed potatoes for sides, and it was really buttery... More

Wonderful food. The entrees were absolutely superb, as was the main course - my daughter orders Well-done steak and she claimed it was completely burned (don't order well-done steaks:) . Ribs and other steaks were good. Service was friendly and very efficient. Will definitely be returning. The acoustic in the restaurant is problematic - or maybe its my age -... More

Good food with reasonable price. The ribs are very soft, definitely worth a try. Personalised flavour of the Mocktail.
