Stopped here for lunch after getting the bus down to Stanley. I was really impressed with this restaurant, it is in an amazing location with beautiful views and it is a lovely place to sit outside of on a nice day to eat your food and drink a beer. I highly recommend this place!!

I've been here many many times and it's consistently good. It's not food that will blow you away, just simple western food, perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon or to cure that nasty hangover from the night before. Make sure you go the for tables upstairs, you get the view and outside air but without the crowds.

With an excellent ocean front view in Stanley this restaurant had excellent decor and comfortable seating. The service was very good too. The food, however, was sub-standard. My salmon wrap with jalapeño was well below expectations for US$27 lunch with regular Diet Coke. The salmon tasted like it was out of a can and the wrap was overstuffed with carrots... More

Used to dine here for so many years and recently back as I 've heard they changed management. Before food was really great but service was terrible, this last time situation is upside down, with excellent and friendly service but average quality of the food, not up to the standard of this overpriced restaurant. Not sure I will come back... More

We booked a veranda table which is highly recommended if you can get one. The menus reads well but once the food was delivered it was just ordinary.The salads did not present well and the dressings were tasteless and our main course of prawns were not nice. .The dish looked good, well presented but the kitchen destroyed them by over...

We had a fish n chips: it was ok but the French fries were not great maybe over cooked. The mussels were good. We also ordered a Greek salad and that was disappointing: artichokes were not good and feta tasted everything but feta. Nothing transcending... The service was fast and the waiters very nice though and the view on the... More

The day we were here it was very hot and steamy so will not fault them for no air conditioning but for the price the food was very poor for the Australian traveller 2 mains was $120.00 au and these were very small mains it is still popular but I would think there would be very few returning

Great place for lunch. Specialty are mussels in a bucket in a choice of broth. The prawns in garlic cream are also excellent. It's not a Budget restaurant but the quality of the food justifies the price. It's a great place to either start or finish your day out at Stanley.

Order the black mussels large bucket , taste horrible , not fresh, not properly cooked. Ordered the shrimp , it looks good but it has no taste. The waiter reassured us everything is fresh , he says he will replace another mussels but we requested to replace with clams. The clams came & we were disappointed.
