We met up with family and friends for lunch. The wine was chilled and the atmosphere was great. Unfortunately, my day was spoiled by the fact that I ordered a fish dish and the restaurant did not have tartare sauce. This was promised to me by the waiter but I eventually sent my food back as it was cold and... More

Ideal for a romantic dinner with good food or a business lunch. Great service and their food is always good.

Disgracefull. Waited more than a hour for hake, prawns and chips while max 15 people in restr. 4 ladies walked out and we should have as well. Food was even worse than the service. Sub standard quality hake and prawns as dry as a plank. Chips or wedges was nothing but boiled potatoes cut into 3 pieces and salted. Not... More

In terms of location, this 1st floor restaurant has it all with direct views of the harbour, but somehow it just doesn't hit the mark. We have been there on a number of occasions, both in the evening and at lunchtime, but the service is erratic and ranging from good to very slow. We were also overcharged on our last... More

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.

Worst experience of my holiday . Great location but - they didn't have anything on the menu ( no pizza , no steaks , no burgers ) just stay closed !! Then Greek salad comes with lettuce and blue cheese olives . They then say there actually is one stake left .- it comes and it's completely frozen in the... More
