This restaurant has a nice view over the city. The hake, salad and chips were excellent. The staff were friendly and the service attentive. Freshly baked bread and herb butter rounded it all off. I will be back.

Good Day Steve If its for breakfast or lunch then a shorts would be fine to wear. Dress code is smart casual. With dinner however I'd say semi formal to formal wear. Hope this answers your question. Kind Regards
