Reviewed 21 April 2012

We enjoyed a quick meal here on a Sunday evening. Good service, good food and a reasonable selection of wines.

“Noisy but great sea views”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Good location right in town but noisy as main road is right outside. Food is average for such a supposedly high class restaurant

“Fabulous restaurant”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Visited recently with friends and were treated to a fantastic evening. All the starters and mains selected from the menu were received with universal acclaim - especially the desert platter, with a mini version of four different sweets from the menu to drool over. Staff very friendly and informative. Highly recommended.

“One of the best meals I've ever experienced”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

The view is brilliant, the ambience sophisticated yet relatively informal and the food ...wow.
The panco-breaded Sechuan pepper squid was absolutely perfectly cooked, juicy and tender and the rare sesame seed and chili seared tuna couldn't have been more wonderful. Chocolate delice brownie with clotted cream was amazing as was my cheese (ripe and at room temperature). Our waitress was professional and attentive without ever becoming intrusive.
Prices are high, especially for wine, but was good value for money.
We walked back to our accommodation on the other side of town and, unlike Salt which was full, most were half empty or worse. Fabulous experience :)
