We thoroughly enjoyed our degustation and wine matches. The menu was superb for a winter's evening - the wild mushroom risotto and the lamb shoulder tagine were our favourites from an excellent selection. All finished off with sticky date pudding, toffee sauce and a port - yum!

Service was prompt, friendly and professional. The fact we were dining with a voucher made no difference. We will definitely return.

I have now visited this resurant over the years with girlfriend,wife, daughters and now grandaughters,and have always received excellent service and meals. In addition always enjoy the spectacular views and activities of the helicoptor base rescue centre outside, and appreciate the quiet while watching the activiies. And yes , I will return.

I have just enjoyed a beautiful meal that was pricey but i didnt begrudge paying a cent.
I chose a fish dish cooked in a lebanese way anf it was flawless and i dont say that lightly.
The restaurant itself was very tastefully decorated and the waiting staff reasonably good.

Really good location with lots to watch out the big windows overlooking the helicopter pad and adjacent to the busy port. Good place to bring children who never bore watching the comings and goings. Always a reliable menu - lots of fish - and excellent service. Highly recommended, but phone and book! They do lots of private events and are invariably busy Fridays and weekends.

We had a Grab One voucher for the degustation menu.The staff were cery welcoming upon arrival and we were given a nice table. The waiting staff were friendly but didn't explain the courses which I found quite strange having been to a few other restaurants with degustation menus, the meals were just plonked down in front of us one after another by a team of waiting staff which made it feel a bit inpersonal. The food was really disappointing, well presented but very average on the taste front with not one stand out dish. Portion sizes were on the small side and the men in our group left feeling hungry. I wouldn't go here again.
