We booked on Open Table which I'd recommend, got a lovely table overlooking the bay. Great menu with lots of lovely fresh seafood of all description with vegetables included, a rarity on our trip!
Strange waiter, didn't take to him too much.
Dessert also a bit odd, they bring you a platter with an example of all their puds, you then choose one then they bring you a fresh one. I chose Key Lime Pie, which was OK but there was a lurid green radioactive looking syrup around the edge of the plate. A different person comes to ask if you dessert is OK - I told him my reservations about the green stuff, apparently it was kiwi sauce, certainly didn't taste like it!
He said that he was glad I enjoyed it - which I didn't really!
Overall, a lovely meal though in a romantic location.

This restaurant has one good thing going for it - the view. We went in early on a Tuesday evening for dinner for ourselves and our young son who was needing fed. We ordered for him whilst we had a drink and checked the menu. The prices were outrageous. On the main menu the prices were high but on the specials they were a joke. The range was 30 - 40 dollars for a main course. Whilst there the waiters were all lounging about chatting and they just seemed to have terrible attitudes, the attitude that they were going to rip off a few more tourists that night. The guy at the desk kept drumming his pencil - incredibly annoying. Our sons meal was rubbish and not fresh. A local walked in when we were there and asked for the Locals menu which he got. There is clearly two pricing brackets going on here. Beware. We left and did not order any food as I had a terrible feeling about the whole set up. DO NOT GO> YOU WILL REGRET IT IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT FOOD, SERVICE AND VALUE FOR MONEY.

Our B&B recommended this restaurant or we would have never found it tucked away at the end of the pier. Our wait was minimal and the service was nothing short of perfection. Fabulous food and a great view.
