We had lunch & dinner in this restaurant & ABSOLUTELY fantastic service from our waiter. Food was very good food. A good solid bet for casual dining, a nice problem free meal in a beautiful setting, this restaurant deserves a higher score.

Very trendy cafe with a large selection of food. The food was a little hit and miss with some dishes tasting wonderful, and others not so much. The tuna tartare was delicious!

What a fantastic position - right on the waterfront - we enjoyed our meal sitting outside. The waiters were incredibly helpful, as we didn't initially understand that we needed to go inside to choose our salad - but it was lovely. Very unusual and comfortable...More

This place is stylish and classy without being too ‘ponsy’. We kept going back because the location is superb, food is excellent and service is efficient.
