Disappointed with everything and to be honest so were my friends. Food lacking in taste and presentation. Overlooked jacket potatoes. Cramped seating and very uncomfortable.

Nice restaurant not far from the sea and the center. Good food, steak and appetiser. Limits selection of beers. Average desserts. Good service and nice personnel.
