Seafood pasta and pizza were really nice. Not the cheapest of places but good service, good food and nice ambience.

There were 5 of us went twice. We were able to sit at the back which is in the open air but surrounded by walls, so not windy at all. The seating is comfortable and if you are on the back wall you are sat on cushions. We did not feel squashed in at all. We started with bottles of... More
