We tried the restaurant we heard about the views. The restaurant is surrounded by glass windows on the water. We went for lunch and I felt the prices were high for lunch. The food is decent and service is good.

Sorry, you would have to call the restaurant directly with that question since my husband, our friends and I were only diners.
Could you please tell me how far in advance can we book a table for lunch - we are coming in October of this year? Many thanks
