The staff really tries to do their best but seem to lack experience. They didn't have so many wines to choose from. Food was okay though. I think they have potential.

The ambience is nice however it does not compensate for the terrible service. Menu is quite limited and the wine list is useless! Although it is known for meat lovers, i think they have no idea of the concept. I ordered a rib-eye and it was not cooked to my liking not to mention they do not mention what region... More

We had lunch here on 3rd November. Excellent spot - right on the waters edge, the decor and furnishings, especially inside are a cut above and the food was also excellent. The service was again - excellent! Go and enjoy it.

We ate here two nights out of five, both evenings given the best service and the most amazing meals.Perfect setting overlooking the bay. Excellent choice of meat or fish, both presented excellently and assistance given with choice of wine, ignore any negative comments, give it a try.

We had a family occasion to celebrate and there couldn’t have been a better place to go. The location and atmosphere are great and the serving staff and food just contributed a great deal to our night. The head waiter/supervisor handled us with care and great attendance all throughout the night. There could have been no better choice of food... More

Our food order was not taken in one hour. Staff clearly busy but rude, disinterested manner. Worst service I have ever encountered. Truly disappointing.
