Good food, delightful staff and a great view too. Easy to find right on the harbour front. On a chilly May evening a warm welcome was great. Prices to suit all.

Gluten-free options are limited and the seating in the restaurant is very cramped. The food is really good (a little pricey) though and the staff is friendly!

Definitely has one of if not the best view in the area. Food was very good. Service was very laid back, informative and attentive. Lots of choices for the whole family. Worth a visit for lunch or dinner

This place is a hidden gem. After hours of touring the fabulous museum, we found the perfect place to have a drink and refuel. The seafood trio was local, fresh, and delicious. Perhaps another pita would have helped us finish the lovely crab and lobster...More
