Food is nice although they do tend to run out of some things even early evening. Proseco was served unchilled. The staff seem overworked and have quite a "couldn't care less attitude".

Food was good. No outstanding and presentation lacked something.

Beer glasses left on tables - restaurant available but we sat in the bar side as a group.

It doesn't look great from the ferry-side, but inside there is good food (with veggie options) and very friendly bar staff. Especially the barman who brought our dog a bowl of water and was very patient with him despite his lack of social skills (the dog's, not the barman's!). The squares of chocolate tiffin (I think they were) were absolutely delicious and we bought some to have with our coffee in the campervan the next day. Originally we just went in for an evening meal but ended up going back the next day for lunch.
