The restaurant is located at the marina quite a short walk from the city centre. It offers a variety off sushi, other seafood platters and something from the land. The waiters are pretty friendly. We loved the atmosphere in this modern restaurant. The also got a poolbar next to the marina.

We went to Gannet for dinner twice. Food was very good but not exceptional.Service was good. Ambience good. You can seat outdoors to eat in good weather. Nice bar overlooking Indan Oceon. Reasonably priced.
