Beautiful Lobster Linguine. The Sea Bass practically melted, and the Red Scorpion Fish was the most flavourful fish I've ever had. The service and the setting was amazing. Recommend to anyone that loves their seafood...cooked perfectly.

This is a top restaurant by any standards . We went for dinner last night and we are returning tonight! The food, drinks and service are first class - the lobster tagliatelle was amazing as was the monkfish and octopus salad
