Yes, the views are great and hence so is the overall ambience! Although some of the fittings are showing signs of wear and tear, it's reasonably comfortable and you could enjoy a long, leisurely afternoon or evening of dining - especially if wind and weather permit a table out on the deck. To one side you have the boat bobbing... More

The silders, veal (potato to salty)were below average . Calamari was ok. Steak average to good. The asian sharing plate... More

Took a couple of friends last week here for dinner and drinks and had the best time. The view is spectacular, the food divine, as were the lychee martinis! The place was very busy on this Thursday evening but the waitress was very attentive and the food arrived quickly. There was a parking site for only $4 close by. It... More

Poped in for a quick lunch. Really like atmosphere and view. Calamari were too dry, actually unacceptably dry. Love fish and chips. In general it is not too bad, but a bit over priced.

Shouting to the people on our table of 5, and I could barely hear what they were shouting back made for a dinner experience I just had to survive. Is it always this loud? Yes! I do remember last time we went I said I'd never go back. We'll, it's been a few years and my mum booked it for... More

For the eyes, beautiful views no matter where the eye wanders! The Deck,somewhere to eat and feel the sun, sea breeze or the stillness of the day or night. The restaurant comfortable surroundings, fabulous service and OMG, I just loved the Paella!

Went for birthday celebration. Food took over 35 minutes to arrive, some meals came out without side dishes, no dressing on salad. One plate sent/took back for dressing had everything drenched in dressing. Staff were very inattentive, they had a large group in and they got all the attention. Even though we raised an issue with the meals, no-one came... More
