Within walking distance to our hotel, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The food was good, and the lights from the hillside were beautiful

Had dinner late one night with a couple of colleagues. Still serving after 10pm in the bar area which was useful. Seafood, especially crab a specialty however there are other options. I had the fish and chips which was good, no complaints. Service was fast and friendly

The staff was polite and friendly, the place had a good vibe..but the food was mostly inedible. The crayfish boil had lots of legs and few bodies, the blackened fish taco had no blackening spice, and the margaritas were Limey and sweet.
