This restaurant has an amazing view on the marina. The service is ok, but little bit slow. The owners are very nice. We ordered lasagna. It was good but nothing more.

We were taken here with our good friend who has an Art Gallery here, and really enjoyed the freshly cooked food. Wine was very pleasant as was the view towards Jolly Harbour and the boats. It was evening and the lights created a good ambiance.
