Restaurant decor is good. The service by Brain the waiter was very good. The food (sea food platter and salmon fillet) were tasty, prices are high end.

We struggled to book a table for eight, but actually all worked out okay. Food variety good, service attentive, but sadly the tendency to start clearing the plates before everyone had finished was disappointing. Apart from that it was an enjoyable experience.

Have eaten here now a number of times. The seafood platter is enormous. The open air terrace very relaxed. A good wine list and the service very attentive. Can get busy late in the evening . Best time to eat in our opinion, early evening.
