The cuisine is absolutely delicious. The view over the harbour only ads to the experience. A great find in a great small city.

It is basically a posts restaurant but do have fish. Although the fish is caught and landed 25m from the door, they price it as if it comes from the other side f the world. We feel they take advantage of the tourist in this regard.

We were surprised to find out this unassuming looking "cafe" was actually an upscale (small) restaurant. Reservations are suggested. The small outdoor seating area provides sweeping views of the water. Food was good (albeit a bit on the expensive side). If you're expecting a Denny's style cafe, you will be in for sticker-shock... but the food and views are worth the price.

Enjoyed the menu, - some classics as well as some unique choices - local food, well prepared. Great service too. We were late for our dinner because the boat we were on arrived in late - they kept the kitchen open and did not make us feel rushed in anyway. Lovely evening. Prawns with artichoke and wild mushroom linguine was excellent! Mussels also.. New owners last year
