This is one of my favourite places for special occasions. The seafood platter never disappoints but the view of the harbour is the main attraction.

We got the Seafood Platter for 3, between 4 adults - looked and tasted beautiful. Was more than enough for 4 of us. There was even enough for the kids to pick at after they finished their meals.

Great service and great food. I had the Chef's special and the fish was cooked to perfection. Dessert is to die for also. This is a special occasion restaurant as it is expensive but well worth it. The location is the best.

They have a well layed out menu but definitely pick off the specials menu. It's full of fresh seasonal seafood. Could do 2 courses for 2 with wine for $120
