The three course special sunset dinner is a meal you must try. Especially the starter of tuna and garlic mushrooms. And the setting is perfect.

Sad to say this place has gone downhill! They rely on the view and location to keep people coming! The service is not what it used to be and the food is poor! Has always been my favourite place but I won't be going back!

Dont bother with this place! They rely solely on the location and view. Service terrible, food over priced and average. They genuinely dont care about any customer! We would never go there again!
