“Lovely location - but that's it..........”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

Took my mother for a birthday dinner. The risotto was inedible, really just a mound of claggy rice pudding in the middle of a bowl. We sent it back and exchanged it for mussels. These arrived in a thick white sauce, the ingredients for which clearly came out of a packet. Their thai fishcakes, stuffed jalapenos etc are definitely frozen and not homemade as described on the menu. Service was OK, once they'd moved us to a table on the bar area because we wished to smoke and once the waiter had brought us the bill, he was really quite friendly! I've known Julie's for a while and it's great for a drink or cocktails whilst looking out over the port, but don't bother with dinner there.

“Special place overlooking the Cabopino Marina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

I just love this restaurant. The staff are so friendly and efficient. Great location overlooking the Marina with the nice boats. The food is excellent and varied. We go there for breakfast, lunch and diner (not every day!). Last night just sat there, had a few gin and tonics and just relaxed with my partner listening the to nice music. You can lounge about on their leather sofas or sit up at the table. Two French guys own it and they know how to look after their staff and their customers. I would recommend this restaurant to the young, old and middle aged like us.

“Well worth visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2012

One of our favourite lunch time stop. Excellent food with a special touch of their own. Lovely marina setting just feet away from the yachts. Take some bread with you and feed the fish in the marina..
