Good place for a light lunch to relax and look out over the river mount and the sea. Nice to sit outside on the balcony.

Avoid: When we arrived there were fewer than 5 other tables. Despite that no waitress showed us to a table or showed interest. It took longer to get menus and then to almost beg for a first round of drinks. At the same time suddenly quite a few people started walking in and the staff did NOT know what to do. Unbelievably the service disintegrated even further as we were them almost forgotten... no drinks and our pizza order took about 90 minutes. 90 minutes with 1 drink is not fun... when our food did arrive some of it was wrong and one persons food just didn't arrive. The excuse, despite the fact that they were still serving pizza was that they 'were out of pizzas'! Bottom line, SERVICE SERVICE SERVICE... people are willing to be patient and wait. Just communicate with them, let them know what's going on and make sure you give them a free beer if your kitchen can't handle. Just don't lie or laugh at customers because that way we all have a terrible time. Sad to say, our one little family gathering turned out to be a miserable one. Ed

Food was excellent but the whole experience was let down by poor service, although staff were friendly. We were let down by the very slow service, with our meal coming after the next table who had arrived some time after ourselves. In addition, whilst four meals (pizzas) arrived together, my son's hamburger arrived as we were halfway through our meal (otherwise they would have gone cold). To be fair, when we complained, the restaurant deducted the cost of my son's meal.
Notwithstanding the above, our meals were excellent, tasty and almost worth the wait! Recommended despite the service delivery shortcomings.

This place has been redone. It was okay but still lacks service and is dirty and in need of a good clean on the decks and a bit more money spent on upkeep. Bathrooms upstairs are disgusting and stink. First d was good though but service slow. May visit again but i am not sure

A typical family steakhouse vibe! Noisy, kids running around, bench seats, slow service. BUT
Great pizzas
Awesome fillet. Stunning chips!
