Had two dinners and breakfast every morning. You could choose your breakfast from a la carte list, very convinient. Sometines the service at the bar was a bit slow depending who was working, but senior people at the restaurant and girls - just perfect!

The chef prepared eight great meals, however the service was not up to his expertise.
I am not sure if this was because it was the "slow season" or just a lack of training with the server. It was over an hour before we placed our order.
Or perhaps the hotel guests were served first.
If you enjoy a three - four our dinner in a beautiful spot, this is the place for you.

Bad food, poor service. The location is the only thing this restaurant has going for it. There are much better restaurants in town, with better food and lower prices.

If you stay at the Harbour Village you learn to love this place. This is where you start your day (breakfast) and your evenings (happy hour). If one does not fancy leaving the village, the food is a great, with not a huge selection but always solid and well executed dishes with European and local influences. Fish is always fresh and cooked to perfection.
