Friendly staff, extensive menu and fabulous location.The meals were very generous and tasty. We were there for lunch, and reserved a table, which was a good idea, and it looked like a must for dinner on Saturday night in particular. One question though, why have all your starters in portions of three?

Good location
Food is fair to poor & expensive for the quality - it seems none of the seafood is fresh or local
Drinks are expensive & the wine list contains obscure & very mediocre wines
Staff are pleasant but this place is clearly understaffed
Would not go there again

Have been here a few times. We take family and friends here when they visit. Great view! Food and drinks are reasonably priced. Food is yummy as well. No problems here at all.

Great location for people watching and good food. Only problem it can be cold in winter.

Good spot for live music on weekends

The food was sound and the atmosphere not so loud as once before, but the prices of drinks made this unreasonable for a future visit.
