You are spoilt for restaurant choices in the waterfront but we chose to have a meal of seafood just for a change. The fish was fresh and well spiced and presented with nice and crispy salad. Dessert however was not that good. Prices well affordable.

This place was our go-to places for dinner. We love their salads and some of their seafood offerings. My favorite was this beet and butternut squash salad. Service was good and the place was really big and spacious. Bit pricey though but a-okay.
