Gorgeous menu and food but it is always packed and the high metallic ceilings make the acoustics very loud. Worth going on a weekday,when they aren't so busy. Fab sea views from the window tables and delicious desserts (especially the snickers cheesecake!)

This place has such a beautiful location, yet the food let's it down. Even eggs are just ok, the rest on the plate is not great at all. It has big space, windows that could make people want to sit there all day if the...More
