Nothing special. Food was ok. Service was excellent. Nice beer and wine selection. Separate bar seemed to be full of locals.

I have eaten there 5 times in the last 4 weeks: each time was good , honest food, especially the pasta dishes. Most come with chicken, but salmon or prawns can be substituted. Great views.Whale watching should be good for another month.
