Real nice place. Great service and food. Can get a bit noisy, but no big deal. On the upside if you found yourself there with people you didn't like, you could pretend not to be able to hear what they were saying and just enjoy the wonderful view of the ocean etc.

Fish and gnocchi were good but the porterhouses, in my opinion, were ruined by slow cooking in an oven.
The ambience and views were good but the background music was a touch too loud. The waitress was also a bit over bearing

Disappointing meal at an average restaurant.
Service was very poor, we arrived at 720. Other tables around us arrived after us. They got drinks and food a long time before us, even though we ordered before them.
We were forgotten for an hour. When we complained at 815 it was still a ‘ few minutes’ before they will be ready.
10 min later the arrived.
Kids chicken strips were good, calamari was ok, prawns ok gnocchi was cold.
Poor service and average food.
When the kids meal is the best on the table something is wrong with the restaurant.
Not going back.

Three of us enjoyed our meal and the forth's meal was liked BUT he has a "fod map" diet and even though he enjoyed the meal he suffered after the meal and is still suffering even though our waitress, Michaela, who was lovely, did try to help choose garlic and onion free dishes.

Wonderful experience except. White wine was a bit like beer. So must have been not as fresh as we'd have liked. Really wanted a Muscat or sweet white wine. Then we girls would have consumed 2 or 3 glasses each as designated driver enjoyed his red wine.

Beautiful food and service. Good choice of wine although disappointed that there was no champagne by the glass. Sparkling rosé was average.
Ambience was good but could do with another form of heat in the main dining area as main beautiful fire away from dining area (pot belly in the centre would be perfect!) It would be lovely in warmer weather.
Overall thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.

The food was amazing and the service was very good. However, with the cafe tables (no linen) and paper serviettes, we felt like we were just in a cafe rather than a nice restaurant. The views during daylight hours would be amazing and we would recommend coming for breakfast or lunch if you want to look out across the water. We will definitely be coming back, but perhaps not dressing up for the occasion.

Food interesting and greatly improved relative to two years ago - we look forward to going there again. A little cool inside (slight draught) but it was a very cold day - wear adequate clothes in winter (not a major issue, hardly noticed).
