Good on Porkies, it always delivers. Six of us had a meal and we all praised the chef for the great meals. The waiter was very attentive and did her best to meet our demanding expectations. I recommend porkies.

The food was excellent and the service was fast and friendly. It is situated right on the waterfront and the yachts gently bobbing around with the night lights reflecting off of the water is very pretty
