A good and wide range of seafood on the menu as well as some meat, salads etc. Enjoyed the prawn risotto and as described the prawns were large. Service on the night we visited was very good and overall price was value for money.

Went here with a large group party on the rooftop deck. Since it was a lovely warm evening, the atmosphere was perfect. This is a place I would go for a special occasion, birthday, anniversary, engagement.
