Well, have to agree with most reviews and whilst only eaten there once at lunchtime, which was excellent, it's a place to keeping going back to. Staff n service are excellent and the selection of wines good. With heaters outside a great place to be with friends or just to contemplate and watch the world.... or harbour, go by

I ordered a steak here medium rare it was well done.... I quietly asked if it could be redone because it was overcooked and the manager flipped, saying it was ok and if I wanted another Id have to go to the back of the que (I was ok with that so long as I got a medium rare steak)... More

We booked up table for nine well in advance, as this restaurant has a v good reputation. Food on NYE was delicious, and the service was courteous and speedy. Good veggie options also. DJ wasn't brilliant, but we danced til midnight anyway, and watched the fireworks on the beach.

We had lunch on the veranda at the Harbour Inn on the 30th of December. It was a lovely day and sitting outside was pleasant; with so many people around we expected sub-standard food and a slow and inattentive service. What a surprise when we had instead great food and a very kind, and reasonably quick service! Excellent scallops, good... More
