I'm a bit of a history nut, and couldn't wait to see this pretty Victorian pavilion from the inside. It's location, right on the beach, is unsurpassed, but to say that I was disappointed with the interior will be an understatement. With a little imagination, the ambiance on the inside could be vastly improved to recreate the days gone by. It's possible, guys - just put in some effort! Outside on the deck, there are wooden tables under umbrellas. But even there, one gets a feeling of neglect. On the positive side, the view across Santos beach towards the harbour is beautiful, and the food was passable. Please, please, do something to upgrade the restaurant inside this beautiful building.

We walked in on a Sunday night and were the only people here. The prawns and calamari was cooked to perfection! The interior is just beautiful and the service great. Definitely one of my favorites.

This resturant is set in the perfect location.It's got a stunning deck as well. BUT sadly this place is so much wasted potential.The staff are very friendly but service is average. We use to go there for pizza pretty often but lately we have been recieving half raw pizza's (even after sending them back for another run in the oven) Dont know guys summ'ing up with that base.Very Average nothing super special write.Sorry guys

Perfectly situated however, not my first choice. Better having lunch outside than inside. Ok if you don't expect much.
