We eat here on a regular basis and the staff are very attentive and nothing is too much bother for them. You can always rely on the food being good and there is a full extensive menu, varying from sandwiches and burgers to steaks. The view from the restaurant is wonderful and the whole place has a lovely relaxing atmosphere.... More

Enjoyed a really good lunch here just before going on holiday. Stunning views and even better food. Great all round place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. just a tad on the pricey side however but this did not spoil the food.
