We went as a large group for dinner in October and had wonderful service with very good food. The fish was fresh as were the vegetables and the view of the ocean was just amazing. Great dinner place.

We enjoyed our dinner... the fish and chips were very good! We tried the seared ahi which is a specialty for this restaurant and it was good but was not something we would necessarily order again! But definitely worth a visit! Go at sunset!

The food was amazing and perfectly cooked. Anytime you have stuffed fish and it’s perfectly cooked is a challenge in itself. We all had different meals and all was really well prepared with exceptional flavours. The service was attentive and friendly and very helpful.

I doubt they have a gluten free menu per se but they offer lots of seafood options so if you are on a gluten free diet you should be able to find something yummy to eat.
