Had a nice meal here recently. Go fairly often and never really disappointed. The menu does get a bit same same and does need reviewing to freshen it up a little but the quality of the food is usually good.

This restaurant didn’t disappoint. It has a lovely cosy atmosphere, white tablecloth dining and beautiful views out over the valley to the ocean in the distance. Fantastic menu and wonderful service. Plenty of parking too. We will definitely be back.
