This is a gorgeous location- book a balcony table if you want fresh air and a great view. Excellent food, a bit on the pricey side but what do you expect for here, the best view on the peninsula?! The risotto is excellent. Attentive friendly staff, nice wine at an ok price and a great cheese platter for $8 I... More

The view from the restaurant is lovely, beware however that there is no air conditioning and the fans are ineffective in the heat. Both my partner and I ordered the chicken breast which was very dry and stringy, the vegetables were covered in chunks of garlic and the potato was both dry and semi cooked. We would have told the...

Went here a couple of days ago with friends and although the view was spectacular the food let the restaurant down. It was not exciting at all and beware of the parking attendants. Two of my friends went back to their car greeted by parking fines.

I went there for my husband’s birthday. We booked the table in advance to make sure we’d be sitting outside making the most of the amazing view. The food was delicious, they offer a great selection of vegetarian options and prices are very reasonable. Great selection of wine and really friendly service too. Would definitely recommend that place.

Last minute lunch with the family, managed a window seat overlooking the bay. Service was good, as was the food, and represented good value for money.
