Went here for an evening meal after reading previous tripadviser reviews. We'd read about the slow service and to give you an idea, we arrived at 9pm and food arrived on the table at 10.30pm. Not a problem for us but there was a family...More

We had a beautiful evening on the balcony, overlooking the harbour. The owners go out of their way to ensure you have a brilliant meal cooked just the way you like it. Great wine list and selection of food. Excellent experience overall.
