We enjoyed a small lunch so limited experience but was nice duck spring roles etc. Had cocktails which seemed to have limited alcohol in them. Nice, quaint small terrace at the rear with pleasant view Reasonable prices

Unless you like your drinks (like gin fizz without gin) and your meals (like veg rice without vegs) with half the ingredients written on the menu do not go there. Unfriendly service and no effort to please. One waiter a model of total arrogance. Overpriced...More

I was drawn here by some overblown reviews. Yes it is good, but by no means great. The views and the sunset were not exceptional and the menu a little too busy and over-inventive. On a positive and practical note, it is easily accessible on...More
