Tried the dolphin cafe for a change after a recommendation from a co-worker. Our food was cooked fresh as we waited, nice polite staff & clean premises, food was nice but slightly more expensive than other local restaurants

We often go to Dolpin cafe for our fresh Fish and chips. You can not get any fresher fish than there as its right next to the fishing boats and fish market at the harbour. Never had any bad experience xx

Not as far as I know. I've never booked when going there at 5-6pm. Lunch might be busier though.
Is there still a cinema at the hotel, also is it possible to walk to the shops and malls
