I've been here two times for lunch in the last 2 months, and both times the food was really nice. Great flavours and presentation. The service is pretty good, and wait times for food has been quite short both times. The actual restaurant feels very dark and cold and could benefit from some better lighting. The property is very nice and provides a relaxed atmosphere.
Some things that got to me were the golf cart that they use to transport guests bags is hideously disgusting. Ripped upholstery and in a completely unprofessional state. Staff members on a day off where loudly ripping about in a motorized dinghy around the wharf.
There was rubbish, bottles and bird crap all over the wharf where all walkers, and guests a-like have to wait for the cougarline.
This place has great potential and hopefully they can make it as nice as their food.
