We only dropped in for a coffee but were impressed with the location,right on the sea front overlooking the castle. The menu did look very inviting and the quality of food coming out looked very appetising. Well worth a visit.

We saw this place when we first arrived but only managed to get a table on our last night - it is very popular. The food is very good but you get as good / better elsewhere. When we arrived we asked for gin and...More

Five of us had a business lunch at the octopus and were very impressed with the food, the service and the views are stunning. We ordered a mixture of steaks, sandwiches and fish and chips (these were one of the best I’ve ever eaten). We...More
