People go there for the view which is beautiful. As the sun goes down everyone runs out to take pictures. The food was good too. The service was also good ,they don't rush you and are attentive.

Everything about this restaurant is lovely ... the architecture, the ambience, the sunset views. The food was terrific, too, with a great selection of fresh seafood. I ordered a simple seafood pasta, which the chef elevated into something extraordinary and memorable. Reservations are essential.
