Probably the best Chinese food you're going to get in the area, but it's the location that makes it a truly lovely restaurant. With outside seating overlooking the bay, and really friendly staff, this is a brilliant little restaurant.

What a lovely completely gluten free restaurant with a fab view...and the best thing? The Chinese food is the best we've had. A lovely couple run it, speak little English but persevere. Food delicious! Lovely place.

Great restaurant where you can hear the waves gently lapping at your feet whilst feasting on some lovely food, particuarly liked the seafood pasta which was superb, and the starter of 5 different ravioli a triumph, perfect portions and great value for money.
