I ordered the Prime Ribeye and the Hazelnut Brownie for dessert. Both are impressive and nicely done. The service is also very good which I like the dinner at a lot

- very well served and tasty pork ribs - totally worth it and for a reasonable price of around $30 - the view is nice too, next to the marina and with a great young ambiance

Location is awesome. I've heard people rave about the steak here so thought I better try it. Was definitely good, but not the best i've ever eaten. Still worth a visit. Staff were second to none, very attentive.

Every aspect was perfect but one. The ambiance , the evening air and gentle ocean breeze welcomed us. Service friendly and professional; the waitress whispered her favorite dishes in my ear and suggested the most popular Cabarnets. The salad, a Moroccan Spiced Lamb Salad well...More
