We chose this because the menu included quite a few options for gluten free (my partner has coeliac disease) They were very well informed on what he could and couldn't have. The food was very nice (I had the lamb shanks)

Well run restaurant, Mother’s Day was very busy they are a well organised team that put the effort in and seem to be well lead from the front as the owner was out amongst everyone helping out too. Great food great service great location.

An excellent dinner well cooked and served by great staff. We each had something different and all meals were well cooked and presented. Would certainly dine here again.

I always think lone star is a good choice when you feel like a steak. I liked the outlook over the fishing boats in the harbour on a sunny evening.

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday night and it was very popular. It offered wide selection of food types and had a reasonable wine list. Service was friendly and efficient without being pushy. Great location overlooking the boat harbour.
