The service was very slow and the attitude of the staff made it feel like we were a bother to them. The food was not enjoyable, definitely wouldn't return.

Fairly standard food - nothing special. Lots of choice and large portions. Good for families. Could be noisy at times

One staff in particular was very rude and hostile. She also brought out an incorrect order and didn't come to check if the food was good. The food we ordered was just above average and over priced.

We had dinner here one night and it was ok good but nothing special.

Mussels were amazing. A huuuuge serving - id say more then 20 mussels, loads of flavour but it's literally mussels and nothing else. My partner got chicken spaghetti dish and this was a solid 0/5 - curdled (separated butter and cream), no flavor and looked awful. Ended up at maccas for a cheap feed. Sad end to a great week...

We went with a family group of 16 people with some children as well. There was something for everyone on the menu. The seafood was amazing and I was told the burgers were excellent. Lovely atmosphere and the service was great. I would definitely go back again.
