“Out of business! No soup for you!!!!”
Reviewed 9 January 2014 via mobile

Only a cocktail bar now. No food served at all. Pity, seemed good from reviews. Now I have to build this up to 100 words. Wow, need a word generator. Par lorum ipso facto majoram est majorus. More words needed here. Why is this so hard to do. Just tongue tied I guess. Pretty dark interior. Pleasant staff in its new role as a cocktail bar, but alas not a prawn in sight. Oh well, plenty of other restaurants in town to explore.

“Food how it should be!”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

First brûlée I've had in very long time that was actually a brûlée. Amazing seafood. The only thing that was a little disappointing is the seafood was a little under cooked. Lovely view of the bay.

“Bonapartes”
Reviewed 26 January 2013 via mobile

Our experience was disappointing. The dukkah encrusted snapper was very dry. We left half of it. The Atlantic salmon was smothered in basil paste which was too strong. Too much. The best thing was the wine. The service was good and the atmosphere was nice. Time to change the chef!!!!!

“Outstanding dining”
Reviewed 20 January 2013 via mobile

We found the shared seafood tasting plate, seasonal salad and cardamon and orange brûlée comprised the perfect evening meal. Highly recommended.
