We visited Sirocco (admittedly during peak season) on afternoon late. We were having trouble getting a wheelchair into the restaurant because they are definitely not wheelchair accessible. Service was of the slowest I have encountered over the past few years. Food was less than average, especially the sushi, for which, apparently, they are well known for. Not worth a revisit

Well worth a visit. Best to book, always very busy. The proprietor and staff although extremely busy, always had the time for you, a smile or polite conversation. Well worth a try.

Nice scenery with the restaurant situated on the water of Thesen Isle. Great menu to choose from but we were there for the sushi after a few recommendations. The sushi was mediocre. Portions were small and the prices above average. Will go to Sirocco again but not hungry as it can become a bit pricey.

Sirocco has a wide ranging menu, and our large group enjoyed the fish and pizza dishes. The views are of the boats and water around the island. The one downside was our wine from the wine list was undrinkable.

Food was good, loved the mussels. Service was casual and a tad slow. Same owners as Drydock restaurant so the sushi menu is the same.

We had a lovely meal at Sirocco. Extensive menu for food and some good wines on the wine list. I would have preferred some more notable big brand wine estates on the red wine list but nevertheless the wine list was good. Service was good......
