Beautiful view from the deck, with seals swimming around as well. The fish was very fresh, soft and tasty. A lovely place to spend an hour or three.

Food arrived at different times, sent it back & asked for it to arrive at the same time so we could eat together. When food returned 2/3 meals was cold & half of the mussels had not opened. Shocking that a seafood restaurant would send food out like that. Agreed with the Manager that she would provide a voucher as... More

The restaurant is situated at a beautiful spot, you have amazing mountain views with the ocean underneath you. Service was excellent and the food was great. I was there with my girlfriends and we shared all the starters and not one thing was off.

It's a lovely venue with good, but average food - I had the prawns special and they were just about impossible to peel (a sign of overcooking); my fellow guests had long finished their food while I was still wrestling with my meal. The waitstaff are friendly but not awfully attentive (maybe they were short-staffed on the evening). The view... More
