Fabulous evening meal visited a couple of times during our time and tried a variety of dishes. Reasonable prices for both food and drinks Nice staff Marked it down to a 4 star as the English breakfast wasn't the best and quite small portion but was nice.

This is the 4th time I've been here in 2 years , the food is always good and service great, we even got undercharged once which we immediately brought to the managers attention! He was so grateful for the honesty, it's a wonderful place especially when boules are being played by the locals outside.

Went here a few times. Staff only too happy to help with extra ice bought crushed in a separate glass with a spoon. Reasonable prices and great food. Relaxing atmosphere and beautiful views of the harbour.

Paid a couple of visits here for brunch. Croissants were overdone on both occasions but the cheese omelette was super. The menu is very good and the food is reasonably priced. The staff are lovely and the restaurant is ideally located.

This is my 2nd visit and I can say "well worth it" The service is excellent and staff very attentive. Drinks come nice and cold and glasses are frosted to keep the drink cool. Varying types of food offered, English and Italian menu choices. Last time round I had ribs, this time I am going for Pizza :) Prices vary... More

We had dinner here 2 nights running as we liked it so much. The staff are friendly and courteous the food was great and the only reason I'm not giving full marks is because I had a mixed grill and the pork was raw in the middle. I highly recommend the black Angus burger though.

We looked at the menu outside and decided to attempt this one. We got escorted quickly to our table, by a friendly member of staff, and ordered our drinks that came fairly quickly. We then ordered a beef burger and pork medallions, and again, got served pretty quickly. That's where our mood went down somewhat... the pork was tough, old... More
