Had a fun night here the food was good and the value great but I think we got a bad night for our waitress, she was training someone so we should have had two peoples attention, but instead it turned into mayhem and it was terrible service, food was good though with good value

Very relaxing outdoor seating on the bay. Busy at lunch time, but very good food with ample portions at a reasonable price. Wait staff was very attentive. Other diners were friendly and talkative if you wanted to engage in discussions.

Great place with wonderful views. Come early for the sunsets. First come first served to sit outside on the terrace. Dining area had a nice ambiance unusual in that respect. Excellent service with a good food choice including roast duck as a change. Bisque Homard delicious and there is a good vegetarian choice. Unusually, European wines on offer at sensible... More
