We had a pleasant lunch of whiting and chips and grilled cuttlefish. Although it doesn't overlook the water, there was a lovely breeze on the veranda. We didn't try the slices on display for dessert as they were quite expensive.

We tried to get in the previous afternoon but were too late. So we went the next morning and we're glad we did. I had a perfect spanner crab omelette and he had poached egg. Service was wonderful and cheerful. We will be back.
