If you are looking for a top notch restaurant, this is most definitely the one. The food is top notch and there is a quaint little bar where cocktails are made. No complaints, excellent food, excellent presentation and excellent customer service. Thoroughly recommended.

Thank you for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor. I am very surprised to hear that you thought the service from Marc (the bearded waiter) was below par. He has been in this industry for many years and is an extremely affable and pleasant chap,...More

Knowing before we dined this was going to be a slightly more expensive experience than others in the area, we dressed up and expected fine wine and dining. We were not disappointed. Offered pre-drinks ,which gave us plenty of time to pick through the delectable...More

Great food, service and atmosphere. Intimate restaurant on the harbour side. Thoroughly enjoyed the steak. Reasonable value but not the place to eat if you're on a budget
