Location, meal and service was excellent. A must for a special occasion. Get a seat at the back to enjoy the views across the bay.

We ate here twice at the beginning of September, once at lunch time and once in the evening. Both times the food was delicious. In the evening we ate in the restaurant over looking Poole Harbour. The food & service was exceptional.
