Had dinner with friends in the restaurant. Drinks before in the bar which was busy with a lovely vibe. Moved into restaurant where we had a fabulous dinner. Crab claws & pâté amazing followed by steaks that would melt in your mouth & a fish stew that was super. Great wine list to choose from & warm, friendly & professional staff. We'd a great evening & couldn't recommend it more.

The three of us were referred to this place as a good one for nice food while located on the water. The food was fine (burger, salad, and fish). The view out onto the harbor as the day wrapped up was very pleasant. The odd thing was the service. It seemed like the B string was on duty and that they had just been hired. Service was slow in coming and taking orders seemed to baffle our server. She was pleasant but we had the distinct impression that the staff had been recently hired.

If you aren't picky on service, this is a decent place to grab a bite and watch a combination of locals and tourists slowly get hammered. The food was fine with a large selection.

My group of 4 attended this restaurant recently with an advance booking. When we arrived it appeared there was no record of the booking, though we were seated in the middle of a very busy restaurant. There were two vacant tables either side, but we were told these were held for groups of six, neither of which turned up. Waiting staff were busy but friendly, more than can be said for the proprietor. Food was absolutely awful, scallops in white wine sauce with chives, was actually presented in a grey coloured watery liquid which was essentially tasteless. My friends dishes were equally unremarkable. The kicker was the exorbitant price charged for this very poor experience.

Overall, poor food presented only adequately, would not go back or recommend.
