Lunch on a beautiful sunny day - great table close to the sand / water. We all enjoyed the Hot & Cold Seafood Feast. Efficient and friendly service. Couple bottles of Italian Prosecco and Affagato all went down very well.

All meals were good except for the main meal of grilled prawns. The two prawns were soggy and tasteless. Unfortunately the signature paella selection was not on the mu.

Really good service. Good wine and cocktails. Great views. Recommended to book ahead on a n or day if you want to sit inside as can get busy.

Yesterday my husband and I had lunch here to celebrate his birthday. Once again the food was excellent and well presented. The staff are friendly without being too pushy. Oysters and prawns as starters, then steak, and shared sorbet and cheese platter. This is our go to restaurant particularly if celebrating a birthday or anniversary. 2 or 3 courses are available 'a la carte'.

Very ordinary food with high prices. Can only choose an “a la carte” option of 2 or 3 courses, so it works out expensive if you just want a main course or an entree. Extremely noisy restaurant as they stack people in there, and being all glass & hard surfaces, everything reflects the sound of other raucous party goers. Too loud for a relaxed family lunch.
