First things first...the food here was great. Catch of the day was delicious yellowtail - a generous portion and so fresh. The atmosphere on a Tuesday evening was rather lacking with very few customers. The emotionally-overwrought 80s rock background music did not improve things. Service...More

We went back here having eaten a couple of years ago. I loved this restaurant, it has wonderful views, and it was from here many years ago that I saw my first whale. However, we were both disappointed with our recent visit. It has obviously...More
