What a shame! Not what it was written up to be. Poor quality overpriced food, unhelpful waiting staff, but really good jazz on a Thursday evening. Time to get their act together.

Beautiful food served by Beautiful People on a beautiful setting. The best bread and butter pudding I think I've ever tasted and the coconut ice cream is to die for. Great value very friendly staff

We enjoyed the waterfront location. The food is fine but nothing special, and it certainly isn’t cheap. For local specialties there are other places that serve better food at lower prices.

Your question seems to have been adequately answered by others. But I would recommend you walk there and take a taxi back to your ship. The walk, provided you are up to it, will permit you to stop in at Pelican Craft Village... More
