Went here a few weeks ago just for a drink and a light bite. Absolutely amazed. Five of us shared a hummus and a goats cheese souffle. Both were delicious. Looking forward to going back again for one of their speical Moonlight Dinners or simply Lunch or Dinner.

The first time we were there it was fantastic experience, however we were a little disappointed the second visit. However, this restaurant has one of the most fantastic sea views and the location is superb. allover, we would recommend this restaurant for the views and waiters.

Excellent views, service, food and value for money. Full moon events are excellent as are rather wine tasting evenings.
