We had a great night - with a view like that, it's hard not to enjoy yourself! We had a large party and the service was great and the food most enjoyable.

Hosted our group of 46. Gave us a private room that sits right above the ocean for no extra charge. Let us choose the items for our group menu. Incredibly accommodating! They even arranged the taxis for us to get back to our hostel.

I attended a friend's birthday party at the Brass Bell, and was going with my "patience cap" on, as a group of 24 people normally means slow service and other related chaos. I was however pleasantly surprised by the excellent service from the waiters. All guests' food was served within a short period of time, all dishes went to the correct people & everybody was happy with their meals. All orders were 100%. The bill was split into 3 tables and with that there was no issues as well. If you've ever been to a restaurant you should know that this is just short of a miracle.

The restaurant is right on the beach with some spectacular views and different seating areas, creating different atmospheres in different areas.

The food was really good and well presented...if you've got some space for more, order a cake of the day - it is MASSIVE.

Decided I fancied mussels so a friend of mine and I ordered some to share. Bizarrely, the flesh of the mussels were warm but the shells ice cold. They had been pre-cooked and then warmed up in the microwave!! Covered in coagulated cream and barely edible..Not good enough for a seaside restaurant.
