Poor customer service. There were lots of flies and bees at our table and a bee fell in my virgin monitor. The waitress was happy to take the glass away when I drew her attention to it but not happy to replace the drink free...of charge as I had already drunk half. Personally I find that very poor indeed. If you have a fly problem it is the managements job to sort it out or to replace drinks/dishes when flies fall into the food! If you want happy customers you’ve got to keep them happy. I will not visit again and do not recommend this place. It is overpriced too.More

This informal restaurant by the beach is really good value and serves excellent food with service to match. The wine list is also good with a descent choice. All together a pleasant experience.
