We were enticed into their early dinner specials (EUR5.50 per dish). My fiancé ordered Spaghetti bolognese, which clearly wasn't freshly made and I ordered Peri Peri Chicken, which was bone dry and was also clearly not fresh. Get hat you pay for I guess. Only upside was the Sangria and the nice seating area. Avoid if you like fresh food!

Stopped off here as advertised price for the full English was the cheapest around, in fairness the food was fine and good value for money. Problem was the service, I felt like we were a burden not a valued customer, very long wait for food considering my order and took way too long to receive our bill

We have visited the area by the marina a few times this week and decided to stop here for a meal. Having had a great experience in a Chinese restaurant the day before we where looking forward to a nice evening by the water. After speaking to one of the waiters outside he showed me the fillet steak on show,... More

Stopped here for breakfast, plenty of choice, however opted for the full English of toast,bacon, sausage, beans, tomatoes and fried egg. Coffee included all for €5.50. Food was perfectly acceptable, service was a little slow, but it allowed a bit more time to enjoy the view of the marina.

Waited 20/25 mins for two paninis and one wrap. It wasn't very busy, a few tables on the deck. Panini was very small. Tasty enough when they arrived. We had to go and find condiments as they were not offered. The view will always do a lot for this place. Right on the marina is great, helps you forgive small... More

Wife had sardines which she enjoyed. I had a mozzarella salad ( only real veggie option - understandable it's a a seafood place). The mozzarella didn't seem fresh. We ordered a jug of red wine sangria. It was terribly weak, so weak in fact you could taste the water from melted ice! For 13.50€ for a jug of weak sangria... More

We called here for breakfast on a recent holiday. Great location and timely Service. Good value for money. The waitress however was very glum.

First night and didn't have a clue where to go, place looked full enough so we decided to stop and take a look. Staff were friendly enough and all over you when you first get there, but all of the "recommendations" made by the host were the most expensive items on the menu. Not particularly helpful really. We just ordered... More

Terrible service, I ordered the pork pineapple is wasn't pleasant. I explained it to one waiters who just gave me evil eyes and they the whole staff ignored us. No one offered to exchange or see what they could do to help. They all totally ignored us. They sneakily offer you bread but then add it to your tab. If... More
