We ate on the terrace at Roys, lovely and romantic. Service was good, although very rushed to move customers out quickly. Our appetizer of lobster rolls was excellent. But the main course of Butterfish was less than appealing. It is supposedly one of the signature...More

If you have been to a Roy's then you know what to expect as this location matches the expectation. Add some great waterfront views for a fabulous evening. The pineapple upside down cake is a must to top off a wonderful meal.

Went here with business colleagues. Service was quick and attentive, but the guys who brought the food weren't that friendly. The food itself was OK: reasonable but not special. Price-wise it seemed a little expensive ($17 for a pulled pork brioche roll and side salad)...More

Very good but expensive restaurant. Great view - right next to the beautiful marina. Excellent food : we tried sushi, scallops , sea food platter , chocolate soufflé and upside down pineapple dessert ( delicious ) !!! Good choice for the special occasion.
