What a great idea and even better execution! Stuning cocktails leading to attentive service and fabulous meal! Recommend their sushi...well, just about everything on the menu you should go for! Hot summers always the best time to go, but get in early as all the great seats are whipped up by the gorgeous models and Russian oligarchs!

Shimmys has a great ambience and nice staff, however we have eaten here a few times and it seems the standard of food is hit and miss. I had the lobster Thermidor, no seasoning and a wilted salad. My husband had the escapada the steak was very sinewy and they had to recook 4 cubes to make it palatable My son had a Ribeye which he ordered medium, it came well done and tough. Come on guys you may be able to blag it in summer with the tourists, but it is us locals that get you through the winter season.

Was only at the bar for a short duration. The location is stunning overlooking the waterfront from the other end. It was a monday evening so cannot really comment on the weekend action.

Overall, I can imagine it would have been absolutely busy over the weekend and would have been a lovely place to be at.

I'm surprised by some of the poor reviews about the service - I guess it depends on who you get to serve you? We went for dinner earlyish (19h) and ordered starters, mains and dessert. Our waiter was very friendly, very prompt and quite frankly one of the more professional waiters I've had in a while. In addition, the food was well made and well presented. It's maybe a bit pricey, but for a special occasion I'd definitely recommend!

We spent the day at Shimmy's with friends, all of whom have toddlers, it was an excellent day spent relaxing outside with a great atmosphere and beautiful view. We had really good food, some delicious cocktails and good service, we could all relax while the kids had a ball in the play area and playing in the sand, we arrived at 12:00 and only left at 18:00. We cant wait to go back!
