Rather than get wet we then ordered cocktails. I review on a regular basis and judge a place not only on... More

The restaurant is nicely positioned. The staff were non attentive. The food was cold and the steak was overcooked. The pepper sauce was awful. I will never go back

The menu looked good and impressive setting. The food was probably good if dished up properly. Food was lukewarm so doing myself bolting it down before it got too cold. Waiters totally impersonal. So many of them buzzing around , ignoring us. Plates shoved on table and found ourselves putting side dishes on ground to make room. At one stage... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal here, I had pork loin and my friend had salmon, but a fantastic selection of fresh fish. Friendly staff, clean and smart restaurant. Highly recommend

STAY CLEAR!!!! Just been here tonight for a family meal (4 adults and 2 children) and what a terrible experience we had! For a start the staff were miserable, unwelcoming and rude. The food was average price but below average quality. One of us ordered the pork chop which came and was as dry and tough as rubber so we... More

Went for a seafood dinner and wasn't disappointed. Mussels to start and they were fresh and absolutely huge! Then had a local fish as my main which was served with canarian potatoes. Very delicious! Would recommend.
