I had heard about this restaurant, as it was well received among some of my family and friends. However I was very much disappointed with our visit. Firstly, we had booked a seat next to the window, as we like the view of the sea,...More

Response from Allison C | Reviewed this property |
It can get very busy, so I would recommend that you book. You can reserve in the website and it sends a confirmation email. Very easy. Hope this helps X
Where can I see today's menu? Thank u
