The chowder was very poor as was the seafood pasta. Both were very salty. The service was also disappointing, almost non existant. Overall, very disappointing.

We booked in for a group of eight, and we were shown to our table promptly when we arrived. The views from the restaurant are stunning. The menus were given out and a large black board with the delicious sounding specials was presented to us....More
