We had a very good, wholesome lunch here, and the price was very fair. Good choice, ideal for kids, beer garden and a fantastic view across the bay. Parking is quite limited, so get here early on, otherwise, you may have to walk a fair way.

How could you even serve burnt food to the customers? It was awful... The portions size for me and the children were fine but my husband complain it wasn't enough for... More
