Nicely situated with pleasant views. Uncomplicated sort of place with a nice atmosphere. The food is very good, my tuna steak was sublime and very reasonably priced. The place filled quickly and is obviously popular. One for straightforward decent food and setting.

It’s a relaxed place in the roof of the building and fans help with ventilation . The tea and ginger beer plus rice not too expensive and notice its still tourist prices but slightly less than close by on the high street .
