The crowds come her in droves so it is worth the long standing wait for food. Get friends to sit inside so only one of you has to wait at the main counter. The food and views here are magnificent

A wonderful way to while away the time, watching our glorious harbour, dining on fresh seafood & sipping a good glass or two of red!
