“Very Different”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Enjoyed the atmosphere immensely. Quite a different place to visit, even though I find fish rather creepy!

“Rescued”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

After our pre booked restaurant lost our booking we had to find a alternative venue on the 26 of Dec. The Manager was very sympathetic and she did find a table for us. The setting is brilliant. The interior design put you into the right mood being shipwrecked. Unfortunately the food was average, we did have the chicken prawn curry which was below standard and the seafood platt for one , which was not outstanding but acceptable if you overlook the chips which where inedible, but we did have a wonderful time and enjoyed ourselves tremendously as the experience saved our special evening. Many thanks again and will be back
