We went there for lunch on a work day during peak holiday season and as a result it was almost full and a short wait for ordering and food delivery. Meals were not particularly cheap was were quite nice and the location, views, and relaxed ambience are beautiful, right on the edge of the marina.

Lack of choices on menu, very basic food you could find in a pub. Food was average, ordered schnitsel and chips and they came very burnt with edges burnt black and chicken really dry. Staff very blunt and not friendly especially if you look like you dont belong. Bar staff great but lack of choice in tap beers.

The whole lunch was delicious. I thought there should be another salad though. Maybe a potato salad as there was no carbs. The... More

We (my friend & I) ordered a Seafood Platter which was tasteless as (we believe) was frozen. We will never order that meal again.

The location on the marina is exceptional and there was plenty of parking. Most of the meals came out in good time, but there were a couple that took longer than expected. The taste more than made up for that though. I had the steak which was cooked beautifully and was like slicing through butter.
