The selection of seafood was fabulous, with crab, prawns, different types of fish, mussels and more. Salads were plentiful too. Lots of fruits and cheeses, as well as desserts. The panna cotta was delicious! The only drawback was that we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated, and not because the restaurant was full,as we arrived early. The wait... More

There were a couple of very well done and interesting dishes - the Tuscan Seafood and Turkey (very tender) were really good. Everything else however was very traditional. For the price not really worth it. Lovely friendly staff and unlike some review below our plates were cleared very quickly. Nice views.

We went here for a friends birthday, to the Seafood Smorgasbord. We had a 2 for one deal from a grocery voucher. The quality was excellent, the variety great and we would recommend it again. Wasn't over busy so the service was good and everyone had a great night!

None of us had nay complaints about the food but the service left a lot to be desired. The food was quite tasty and there was a reasonable selection.... More

Shown to our table. No drinks menu given to us until requested. Main menus were stained and stuck together. Low gluten food options only. Told this was due to contamination risk in kitchen due to food containing gluten is also prepared in kitchen. This is not acceptable for Coeliac's. Ordered entrées which were presented well and did not have to... More
