Enjoyed so much we went twice. Second time for the seafood platter, it was all we could hope for and too much for two. With beers you wouldn't even get a taxi into town for this price!

Food was ok but not exceptionel but what was really bad was the service and the ignorant and not smiling staff. Location good - but with some bad smells from the river at times.

Hi, your coffee is absolutely fantastic. Your meal we did not enjoy that much. However, it might have been just one of those evenings, where things do not work out. All the best. middlepark traveller
