Tucked away from the main street of Victoria parade, it is well worth the leg work to track it down. Very cosy homely place with unintrussive staff. Seafood without the premium price and taste so wonderful.

Very small but high quality food. Great views. Expensive but it's good. Not an extensive menu but what they do is very good. We had a table of 6 and everything we asked for was spot on. Well done guys.

We ordered a seafood platter for one, and a steak. The seafood platter was huge, I'm sure with the sides and complimentary bread, would have fed the two of us. We didn't order any starters, which was definitely the right decision. The steak wasn't as...More

It's the old saying "you get what you pay for" The food is superb, the menu has offerings for most medium budgets.
