This restaurant on Welfare Rd is exceptional. The service is great and the good is very good..The kitchen is in the front and you can actually see the chefs preparing the food. There was a guitar player playing nice dinner music. Very relaxing experience.

Very nice outdoor sports bar with excellent food by the lagoon in Simson Bay. All tables are outside and by the water. Many things are good but the best to me is the lobster terminator and they give a very good portion.
