An oasis in which you can relax and enjoy excellent food. Very friendly and helpful service. Dogs not allowed but can leave dog in vehicle in parking lot which is safe and close to Bistro. We ensured we could revisit for lunch on our holidays. This is a must to visit.

We were fortunate to get a table in this busy restaurant / bistro. The location has a spectacular view. The exterior of the bistro is appealing in its blue grey nautical theme and equally so is the interior which is spotless and gleaming white. They have lovely styled menus with a great layout offering many delights. A lot of thought... More

Fish and Chips the likes we have never seen. The fish was fluffy in a light batter and the chips golden brown. Just lovely. The location is jaw dropping. Right on the water with a terrace where we sat on a sunny Saturday. Great gin list but overall it is one of those places that just creates memories. Loved it.

Location Excellent. Guinness very poor, steak over-cooked, ordering requests either forgotten or mixed up. Overall standard of service bad.

We weren't sure if we could just call for a coffee as it is a bistro and it was lunchtime on Sunday, but nothing was a problem. Of course when we saw the menu, we couldn't resist ordering the potted crab salad to share. So glad we did. It was simply divine. Followed by excellent coffee served by extremely pleasant... More
