“High expectations..very disappointing results”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Dinner looked like a piece of art, and that was all that was good about it. The food had no taste at all. Don't go for the duck, you will get a piece of cardboard with black mystery sauce which I can only describe as melted vegemite. The "fresh" fish consisted of 50% butter and 10% heavy cream and 40% fish, also not recommended. A good restaurant to go for a simple drink at the bar, when you get hungry just cross the road and have an amazing meal at Kome.

“Mixed feelings as well....”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

We ate a light lunch here and the food was great as was the view. Supper we weren't so keen on. I had the snapper and though good the portion was quite small. My wife had the vegetarian option, a roasted cauliflower dish. It turned out to be a plate of mostly roasted cauliflower and cost 25USD. I don't think the value was there when compared to other restaurants we ate at in the area.
