Visited twice from hotel nearby. Busy, noisy restaurant well frequented by locals. The waitresses were very helpful but kept extremely busy. Food was fine but the chef went overboard with the chips on our second visit. The Chilean wine we choose was excellent. Friendly locals invited us to join their quiz team on the Tuesday night as we sat at an adjoining table. Good atmosphere but noisy. Wonderful view of Grand Havre Bay from the restaurant. I had to return the bill as it contained charges for meals supplied to another table. It was quickly amended with apologies. It is an enjoyable restaurant but with some tweaking in the kitchen, could be excellent.

Excellent service, lovely food, good choice and great views. Very busy when there but this was explained fully and we were happy to wait...was worth it!

Thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Outstanding food, spectacular view of bay and great value for money. The fillet was superb, as was the baked brie! Yum-yum!!

Always busy and a favourite for many years. Sadly the service on our last visit was poor- the table adjacent to us had to wait over 30 minutes before anyone bothered to take their food order. The table the other side of us were complaining at their food being not as described. Our main and only course was OK but we did not feel inclined to stay and wait to see if anyone would take our desert order or ask if we wanted another drink/coffee.

We visit this restaurant quite a lot and have had good lunches along with not so good lunches with raw bacon served recently. However this was a rare occurrence and the staff were very good when it was pointed out. The restaurant can be busy and sometimes noisy, but it's a reliable and enjoyable place to go where you are guaranteed friendly service. Our favourites are fish and chips or double burger with fries! They do offer a lovely cheesecake too!
