Excellent mainly fish restaurant. Great menu choices and specials. Service very attentive and professional. Proper dining experience, and not over-priced. Great setting down by the harbour.

We stopped in for lunch before a visit to the castle. The restaurant is just below the castle on the marina. The cozy dining room is decorated in soft seaside colors. The staff is efficient but friendly. The meal was exceptional, especially the scallops.

We enjoyed our meal here but the food wasn't overly special for the price and portions were quite small. All very fresh though !
