We had a quick lunch before embarking on a whale watching expedition. The service and the food were great! Prices were reasonable too. The weather was nice, so we were able to eat out on the outside deck. Lovely!

This restaurant came recommended and didn't disappoint. Appies and main course were delicious. We'd go again.
