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.

Hi, we have dinner booked to celebrate a friend's birthday but just found out she's not a huge fan of seafood unfortunately. Is there alternatives on the menu? I can't find the menu online. Thanks
