Excellent wide variety of food that will appeal to all diners. Fabulous view so get there before sunset. They will come and pick you up which is an added bonus.

This restaurant is well located, lovely view and nicely decorated. Wait staff were excellent. Meals were nice but not breath taking. Nice music from a local chap. Worth checking it out though, lovely to see local wait staff who were charming and astute.More
