Perfect spot in the sun for an afternoon of cocktails and Tapas. The barfood was great with the highlight being the salt n pepper pawns in thai sauce. Cocktails by the jug where fruity and fresh. Close enough to walk to, which may be necessary...More

A good solid meal overlooking the water. We had the scallops and the barramundi but preferred the scallops. The decor can probably do with an update though. The service was great. Tip: go at lunch so you can actually see the view.

Have been to the restaurant a few times and it was amazing. Unfortunately their bar food downstairs doesn't reflect the quality of the restaurant. Each share plate was disappointing, some good bits outweighed by the overall dish. Will stay upstairs next time.

I was there in October and from memory they did have disabled access and the women’s toilet was very roomy. Agree with Graham best to contact them directly as it is well worth the visit.
