Great food and great service but lacked a bit of atmosphere on the night we visited. Was a quiet Monday night in fairness. Lovely breakfast served daily however.

Really nice ambiance, good juice, but the pasta was really disappointing. we got the seafood pasta, beef stroganoff and a tomato based pasta and they were all huge portions but varied from cloying and super heavy to flavorless but rich.

The restaurant is well located at the Hotel Slipway. We were there for their Hot Chicks evening. The ambience was great by the pool. The band was entertaining as well. The chicken dishes had a good variety and well prepared. The prices were very fair....More

If you are a vegetarian...the platter will extra satisfy your hunger. Don't be deceived by the look..they taste good. Big portions so if you are tiny like me you will be wasting more than half of the portion.
