Make a booking! Two beautiful meals of fish (one salmon with crab and one the special - snapper fillets with grilled vegetables) suited us down to the ground. Some of the nicest grilled vegetables I've had, beautiful fresh fish and the salmon was loaded with...More

I had high expectations of at least a decent seafood dinner given the good reviews. First, the service was slow even with a reservation and with the restaurant barely at 30% full on a weekday night. The food took over 30mins to get to us....More

This restaurant has indoor and ourdoor seating. We were there during heavy rain so only the indoor area was open. In good weather the views would be very pleasant. A good seafood restaurant with local produce.

Hi, sorry, only just saw your question. I'm afraid I can't remember about the access- I'm usually pretty attuned to access issues, having a family member with mobility issues, but he wasn't there at the time. Suggest you... More
