Nice location on Colwell Bay, but very busy, cramped and very noisy! The service was poor, the food was nice, but tiny portions and very expensive. I wouldn't choose to eat there again.

Delightful view over Colwell Bay where we were lucky to see an amazing sunset. Nice decor with friendly service and great food. Would love to be there on a warm evening to enjoy the outside terrace. Looking forward to a second visit his holiday!
