Let me start by saying that the food was good. The service, however, was awful. The waitress kept getting our order wrong, then she tried to take the food away whilst we were eating it. Then she messed up again, and when we asked to see the manager, she said No. She then said she would pay for her mess... More

I had the most delicious chocolate volcano in this place! The waiters were amazingly nice and the view was great! I want to go back just to try their fish & chips!

I have been to this restaurant many times and seldom have a "complete" meal - complete meaning that all went well. I've had rubber bands in my stir fry, I've had cold food, bad service etc etc. Some time back we decided not to go back there but recently, a friend said that it had changed hands and was good...

A restaurant that only has 4 tables occupied on a Saturday night. You don't get customers to frequent a place when you cut on the quality of the staff and food.

We decided to treat the young member of the family to a meal at this restaurant. The welcome was warm and we were quickly seated and our drinks order taken but his is where our wait started. It took forever for the obligatory rolls to arrive and even longer for our mains, even though the restaurant was almost empty. The... More

If it was possible to mark less than 1 I would. Terrible service which started when we arrived. The wine glasses were brought 1 at a time, drinks arrived with no ice and then the drama of waiting for our food with a completely empty restaurant. In order to curb our hunger we asked for more bread rolls only to... More

Ocean basket is usually a place to be relied upon, but this one somehow misses the mark, the service is average and the food is too. Not a bad experience but not up to the usual standard.

My title says it all. Good meals, friendly staff at a very wallet-friendly price. Excellent value for money.
