We came here for lunch and had an average experience. Service was very slow with long breaks between when the server would check-in. We were brought the wrong food at one point, and it took about an hour for the correct entrees to arrive but that didn’t seem to be of concern to the staff. Menu has a fair amount of variety with a separate vegetarian section which is great as I have found it difficult to find vegetarian options on the island. I ordered beetroot ravioli with an olive filling. The pasta itself was OK (I’m not sure where the beetroot was?), but it was served with pretty sad vegetables they said were grilled but looked to have been boiled (so mushy some were not identifiable) and were cold. We had strawberry cheesecake for dessert and it was good. I would come again if I was in the area for the vegetarian selection alone but do not expect fast/great service.

Wasn't expecting too much of this place but the tuna was absolutely gorgeous. The portion was huge so you could possibly share if you weren't too hungry. The honey pudding was more of a tart but my other half polished it off all the same!
