We had lunch here again after a 3+ year absence, and we were disappointed. We enjoyed being upstairs and the breeze coming through was very nice. However, the kitchen was extremely slow and the food arrived rather cold. We both had fish 'n chips and it was just average.

Average quality of food. Prices are not that average though.They could be a lot better by rethinking the concept.

Location is excellent, but the food was disappointing. Had to wait for drinks, and had to stand up to catch the waiters attention for our food order. Ordered fish, which was dry and over cooked, and the chips were cooked in oil which should have been changed months ago.

Visited this restaurant on 2 consecutive days as all others were overfull. We all had the hake and chips both days which was reasonable priced, well prepared and tasty. Will probably make another turn before end of our holiday

While we were having lunch, the table close to us...table of 4...fairly young couples, they were busy complaining about their Meal. We find it hard to believe as we ordered the same meal. Our Food was great...We will certainly be back. They just did not want to pay...very sad indeed.

Our mushroom and shrimp cocktail starters took 45 minutes to arrive and were appalling. My mothers shrimp cocktail was lukewarm. My mother,kind lady that she is, said not to worry shes sure the mains will be better.... More

Went there for a Sunday lunch. Ordered steak and calamari - absolutely delicious! The staff was so friendly, they made us feel right at home. And they had wonderful live entertainment while serving lunch. I would definitely recommend them!!
