And although it was busy and we were warned that it was gonna take a while, the food (all freshly prepared) arrived in quickly. All the ingredients were tasty and the food well balanced. We were...

Choice of fresh fish and shellfish, simply cooked and served, in the shell and without fuss for you to enjoy with organic salad leaves from local growers .. Daily specials as the boats arrive..everything home made with the seasons... Seaweed pesto is a must try !!
