Nice restaurant, average decor, lovely sea breezes through the traditional sash windows. Two servers on the night we dined, maybe just not enough for the diners present, but definitely wasn't full. So slow service ensued ... we ordered some olives and whitebait with drinks while...More

My husband and I had a rare date night dinner here on Wednesday night. We had reserved a table for 6.30pm and I'm glad we did because by 7.15 it was packed. We ordered the meatballs, chilli prawns, pork belly, fried chicken wings and shared...More
