Reviewed April 2, 2013

Delicious meals, very well cooked, and presented. This is coupled with stunning views across the bay and attentive friendly service. The trip advisor rating is well deserved.

“Couldn't be better!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Compliments to the chef - the food was of excellent quality and great value, along with reasonably priced drinks and attentive, friendly staff - wouldn't bother trying anywhere else in town! Have eaten at many a top "celebrity chef" restaurants and not been as impressed.

“Treat yourself”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We had a few evening meals and because it was dark by 6 pm we missed out on the fantastic view from the Dining area. The Chef is first class and worthy of top restaurants. Very good selection of food which a lovely presentation. The staff, on each occasion, were attentive, very polite, fun, and very helpful. Two courses were available at £20 each or £24.00 for 3 courses. The food is all freshly prepared and to finish off the meal we were presented with a couple of pieces of Chefs home made fudge which is to die for. I tried the rack of Lamb, Steak and the trio of fish ( on different evenings of course) and in my opinion all were faultless. They do cater for non residents but book early..
