Unfortunately this restaurant got off to a bad start. We had gone in at lunch time and reserved a tablebinside the restaurant, but with a view onto the lagoon.

I had a very spicy red prawn curry and friend had calamari steak (excellent) mussels and prawns. Service slow and seemed to be a chore for staff. Food very good though and nice view of inlet.

This place is in a nice location which is why you would come here. Staff, food and everything else is what you would expect from a tourist place I guess.

We went to watch the rugby over the weekend. The coffee wasn't great and over extracted. Decor was out dated and could do with a make over. Service was adequate. Wouldn't recommend to friends

The view from the restaurant is beautiful but the service is quite slow. We went there for drinks, but it took so long for the drinks to arrive, I wondered how long it would take if one ordered food.
