Lovely spot, lovely staff and food. Apparently you see whales here, but the season was passed. However some people we spoke to said after we left, whales were breaching everywhere! Good food but not cheap.

You cannot beat the scenery in the restaurant and for a great after dinner walk. The staff was super friendly. I had an excellent cod dinner with scrunchions and carrots. Everything was very tasty and filling. I would come back in a heartbeat.

Ordered the seafood linguini and was NOT disappointed! There was a ton of seafood! Shrimp, clams, scallops as big as your head( not really, but you get the point... massive). Everything was SO fresh and delicious. 10/10! A must try!
