This restaurant was recommended by another hotel - and what a good choice it was. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, advice from the staff and the views over the cove from our table. The produce was local, seasonal and delicious. A meal to remember. Thanks.

The view from the windows over the harbour is very nice. Meals were expensive for what you get. Steak was well cooked but nothing memorable. Service can be a bit hit and miss. Ordered a glass of red and it was the smallest glass I...More

This is a great find for anyone looking for excellent food in a fabulous location. The outlook over the inlet with a gorgeous sunset would be hard to beat. The menu is modest in length and not cheap - but outstanding quality. Service was friendly...More
