The atmosphere was great with happy diners enjoying the wonderful view of the boats in the marina while appreciating the good food & attentive staff. We all had great food and would certainly go back & recommend this restaurant to our friends.

You could be anywhere on the Med sitting outside here and looking at the boats. Fairly typical menu with nice selection of seafood, grills, light meals etc. The prawn and lobster rolls were nice and fresh and the seafood chowder looked good too.

Nice view, good outdoor seating - and very nice lunch options. We came here for a work catch up and head the John Dory Sliders - suuuper yum! They came very quick, the service was friendly and even had some water for our pup! Loved...More

Went for dinner early December, on a busy night. We waited a little while at the bar because it was crowded. Not a problem. When we got a table, we sat there and waited over 30 minutes with no one coming to take our order....More

Great location right opposite marina so you can enjoy looking at boats while eating. Food is average and definitely city prices. Have visited several times as it's local and it's best in summer as you can sit outside so not so noisey.

Went to here for lunch on Sunday. Quite busy. Service is friendly and prompt. However, the cesaer salad is tasteless and very watery in the end, bacon is overcooked, poached egg is cold, no croutons instead of several pieces of very dry bread! Very disappointing!

It was busy when we arrived but we were greeted promptly and seated. Drink orders were made and the service was friendly and fast. Good sized meals. Good value for money. Great service. I would return, I just wouldn't order the dry curry again.
