We have been here a few times now and have never been disappointed! Our last visit was on New Year's Eve. We ordered the seafood platter and i had the bugs. The bugs were delicious and not over cooked at all. The service is efficient and friendly and not to mention the fabulous views! love coming here.

A favourite of ours for a few years now, it didn't fail to impress once again. Menu had great variety, food was delicious and served promptly. Beer and wine was icy cold and refreshing. This was my first visit during the "high" season, and I was equally impressed at how well they managed the additional patrons without making you feel... More

We called in for a mid week lunch and has a terrific time. Whilst the weather was horrid, the calamari was brilliant, cooked to perfection. A glass of bubbly capped it all off. Club staff were pleasant, helpful and efficient. A lovely way to spend an afternoon.
