This was a great place to enjoy the sun go down and see the boats return. We only had a few drinks there, but service was good and the atmosphere enjoyable.

We had a nice time here, but what the picture on the menu shows of the food, is not what you get. My husband wanted the Mussel pot, but what arrived was 8 mussels with bread and tomato mixture on. We had insane oysters just days before, and we looked forward to their oysters as we were in oyster-world! The... More

We were so disappointed to find out that this restaurant has been closed down. There is another restaurant, but the prices are just ridiculous

On our last visit we popped in at Whet to have some oysters for sun downners. And they were excellent. A pity that they don't have craft beer to go with it. The views are great and the staff very friendly and helpful.

It is destined to run into problems. Hake was fishy. Service is terrible. Manager was serving customers and pleading for assistance from waiters :-(

Unfortunately this restaurant got off to a bad start. We had gone in at lunch time and reserved a tablebinside the restaurant, but with a view onto the lagoon. When we arrived no such table was available as there was a large tour group in, and the manager simply said that they had booked months ago. He couldn't explain why... More
