The restaurant was in a good location by the harbour. Layout was spacious and atmosphere was very good. The service was helpful and friendly. The food was first class, the seafood and beef were excellent, deserts and pasties were also very good.

They catered for my husband who is wheat intolerant and the kids meals were very good. We had very nice food and drink, service was the only thing that could have been improved, was a bit slow!
