“Seafood Restaurant”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The food is quite good as is the atmosphere. Their service is friendly and efficient. However its most memorable feature is the alfresco dining area and its great sunset views.

“Expensive, but delicious food”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Great views over the harbour. It is fine dining, the food is expensive but delicious. However the quality of seafood isn't that great (you can get better buying from a fish market). Still a nice place to eat.

“Food of varying quality”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We went to this restaurant for the first time the other night. Location and atmosphere were good: there is either outdoor seating by the water or inside the restaurant which is very spacious and well-designed.

I ordered the grilled chicken salad with a portion of chips, both of which were a good size. I thought that the salad should have had different ingredients to make it more interesting though. My partner had the 'curry of the day' which was thai beef massaman curry- the curry sauce somehow started off to be really delicious and tasty (even though the other ingredients such as potatoes and peanuts were quite minimal), but after he got about halfway through he couldn't stomach any more because it became just too sickly. We thought what had probably happened was that the chef had perhaps tried a mouthful of it but hadn't eaten the whole dish himself. Also the beef was very fatty, as was the chicken in my salad. The other complaint I had was that I ordered a side portion of mayonnaise and I think this must have been the cheap stuff, as it was really sugary and tasted like a dessert rather than mayonnaise!

Service was good though and it wasn't expensive.

The seafood platter was one of the best we have ever eaten. Huge variety beautifully presented and all fresh only fried portion was the calamari. Highly recommended
