To begin, I’m not one to write about where I eat. Though I eat and write for a living. The place is open and refreshing with Fairy tale views. Each service person had their own identity and charisma. Personally, I love that. We sat, we...More

Fantastic location, excellent service. Had breakfast, waffles with bacon & allegedly maple syrup. I say allegedly coz it tasted like over sugared golden syrup, with crumbly tasteless waffles. Don't get me started on the price. The croissant eggs were better but pricey. Good coffee. Overall...More

Paying $103 for 2x fish and chips and with 2 glasses of wine shouldn’t be this expensive. Thankfully you can keep your eyes off the prices by looking at the view. Best book ahead and get a spot on the balcony
