A great venue with a fantastic view over the harbour. We had a table in the window which was perfect. Mussels with cider and bacon starter was delicious. Followed with turbot with lobster tails. Turbot was excellent - a good size and perfectly cooked.

It's the old saying "you get what you pay for" The food is superb, the menu has offerings for most medium budgets.
