Ate the fish & chips lunch. Good portion size, It was well prepared and served hot. Most dishes are a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Service was excellent and our waiter was very attentive.

I had the small filet and it was good, but not great. I recently had a high end filet that was much better than what this location offered.
