Party of 8, we had a selection of dishes including lobster pasta, cheeseburger, tuna sandwich, chicken wrap. I went with the salad with prawns and salmon all washed down with rose wine.

Went here for lunch after the Harbour Cruise. The clam chowder was excellent, very creamy with a lovely hint of dill. Lots of fresh bread to go with it! Fast service, nice view over the water. Would recommend.

Food was delicious and of generous proportions - from the clam chowder (which was probably one of the best I have tasted), to the seafood platter. Service was outstanding - kudos to the staff who were on the ball. Easily one of the best restaurants...More

Sailer atmosphere with a very service minded waiters. The food was excellent. We got lobster and shrimp with rise and vegetables. Really high quality and not expensive. Amazing place also in autumn and winter time.

The food at this place was exceptional. The fried fisherman's platter was exceptional! It was heaped so high with so many scrumptious pieces of various different fish- it was impossible to finish. And the clam chowder. It was THE BEST we have ever had!! Great...More
