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!!

This Sunday was made spesial when my sister, brother-in-law and I was greeted with the friendly faces of the restaurant staff. The food was delicious, the music relaxing and the view beautiful... Will visit again when in GB.

We only had a beer or two here. But we did order fish and chips from the takeaway window. Which were, ideal for when you wanted to stroll out to the small lighthouse on the edge of the harbour.

This was the most amazing mushrooms we've ever had. And then the seafood we chose - it was the best! Nice atmosphere as well. Good and friendly service.

We had a lovely Sunday lunch at Harbour Lights. The food was fresh and tasty (could have arrived quicker though) and the service, management were all very friendly. There was a wonderful musician playing live music in the background. Just dreamy.

First things first...the food here was great. Catch of the day was delicious yellowtail - a generous portion and so fresh. The atmosphere on a Tuesday evening was rather lacking with very few customers. The emotionally-overwrought 80s rock background music did not improve things. Service is slow as everything is cooked to order. Good value

Harbour Lights has a great location and view. The staff are friendly and helpful. Greg, the manager was especially good. I enjoyed the Timmys combo of fresh fish and calamari. A great meal. The wine selection is a bit small but, good nonetheless. The kitchen was a bit too slow but, all in all a great experience. Oh, the chocolate... More

A lovely view, yes... good meal, yes... slow service, yes... What you have to be aware of: There is a VERY steep staircase to get up to the restaurant: black short steps, unlit, unmarked and VERY treacherous... Coming down I missed the very first step and because the stairs are so steep, gravity took me down head first...! I fell... More
