Saved this restaurant for our last nights family meal after seeing the setting in the day looked perfect overlooking the marina, but that's where it ends. From the off it was downhill, seemed like everyone that came in was offered a free glass of champagne...More

I can't fault the views, atmosphere and service in this restaurant but I found the food to be distinctly average for the price we paid. I'd ordered calamari to start and the mixed paella as a main to share. The calamari was lovely but the...More

Our friends wanted a paella and was recommended by Pirate ship/catamaran booking agent so we gave it a try and we were not disappointed. Beautiful meal and lovely staff do not give it a miss.
