Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Extremely hot terrace and with difference the worst seafood I've tried, dried calamari instead of fried. Also the most expensive.

“Messed up orders, food bland and terrible coffee”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

We came here because we felt like seafood. Ordered from there BBQ seafood menu, seafood was fresh but bland and boring. No seasoning on it or the sides. They messed up our orders completely, sides and sauces were wrong. Ordered a frappe mocha, coffee was the worst we have had on the island. Burnt and watery. Service was very average too, had to go up and ask if we wanted anything. After takin out order they didn't come back once. Definitely wont be eating here again

“Great Western food with a breeze.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

The menu has EVERY base covered; An exentensive menu.

The Thai food was okay but not as good as much cheaper places around town. The Western food was very good and if you are looking for a change it's a great venue.

The best seats are along the front with is on stilts into the bay affording good views and access to a persistent breeze. We ended up eating here 3 of the 5 nights we were in town, taking street food the other days.

Service can be a little slow later into the evening (20:00+) and certain dishes take longer that others. Pizza being an example.

Overall a great place to eat.

“Great western food, poor service”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Not the cheapest place in town but the western food was excellent. The thai food is not really that good. We came here three nights. Coming early is recommended as the service gets pretty slow as the restaurant fills up. The pizza, pasta, and creams Brûlée were very good.

“Very Bad Service”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Chaotic staff in a restaurant that was not busy. Food was reasonably priced and quite good. Many customers left while waiting to get served.
