I had fish and chips and my partner had indian food, both were very good. I can say indeed you can ruin fish and chips, but not this restaurant. And it has a stunning view with good prices.

The Lakeside Bistro offers a great variety of food at decent prices. Both of us had fish and chips and we both thought they were very good. If you can eat outside and enjoy the view it really adds to the dining experience.
