I was very apprehensive about this spot given the review about it being dirty. When we walked in the tables were sticky and floor not so clean, I went past where the pizza was being made and peeked into the kitchen... clean, nothing to worry about! This place gets very busy in peak times, and it is a good idea to book if you know what time you want to go. The cocktails are nice, view amazing, pizza and ribs excellent. Service good, atmosphere vibey. Would go back!!

What a great spot for sundowners or any downers ! Awesome view - the wind is cleverly glass boxed out . Our Amazing server , she made our day . The rough older looking ex rehab type waitresses screw things up by taking orders but not relating the message . They really could make an effort with presentation of themselves .
Fish n chips tasty ! Drinks took ages - these season gold miners amaze me ! Rack em pack em and stack em ! No care . Clean the place up - eeeeuuhhh

Drama service, overcooked food, 1 hour wait for dinner. It is more a restaurant in a discotheque. Extremely overrated as restaurant. Would be fine for a drink

Great atmosphere, delicious pizza and cocktails. The service is a tad slow but the view of the sunset more than makes up for it

We chose to sit outside near the play area. Kids playing and the sound of the sea made for a tranquil 2 hours.

The beer is cold and on tap, the waitress was very friendly and efficient and our fajitas were great.

It's a good spot but get there before the crowds!
