Stopped by for lunch - was ok, nothing to get over excited about but not bad either. A good mix of dishes and a nice sitting area to look out over the harbor.

The onion soup was really lovely, well cooked and warming and the pate was really delicious. The staff were quick to serve and I was impressed with the number of folks they managed to cater for.
