Luxurious feeling when you come into the restaurant. Service was friendly. We had the Lobster thermidor and it was very very good. I liked everything about this restaurant. And the icecream, especially coconut and pistachio was to die for. Great experience.

Go! A drink evolved into lunch then that evolved into a tour of Admirals’s Inn by a wonderful member of staff. Stunning location and couldn’t have asked for more. Will definitely be back!

The restaurant is great for watching boat tenders zip about, drinking one of Reggie's awesome Rum punches and the lobster is to die for!
