Loved the view while eating as well as the atmosphere with the music from buskers. Food was enormous but really nice. Enjoyed it, but a bit difficult with a pram. Helpful staff.

I visited this restaurant a year ago and this time round it was average to say the least. Not much to say negative or positive. Get in, eat, and leave quickly!
