Firstly, I would like to compliment our server, very kind and super helpful. 😁👏🏻 secondly, I would like to compliment the chef. I had a very well seasoned paella. The prawns were seasoned just right and came out the shell so well and the rice...was really creamy.... Unbelievable food! Consider me a loyal customer... hopefully I can resist the paella and try something new next time. 10/10 🥳👏🏻More

Really disappointing quality, in both drinks and food. Sushi was a mess and would rate it worse than supermarket quality, with a ton of rice and limited fish. Sparkling drinks were incredibly sweet and not enjoyable. Overall seems like a major tourist trap and would...not recommend.More

The location is everything.. where after the sunset cruise you don’t want to go home. The music calls you by your name🤭. Perfect way to end a trip. Even though it can get very busy the servers do a great job delivering quality. The band...was amazing!!!!More

Priscilla was super busy with lots of tables, lots of wind and challenging furniture to navigate with trays of food and drinks. She was super professional and calm despite the Saturday craziness. Thankyou! Sushi lovely too.
