Excellent by the marina location. Casual outside seating. Clean. Fast and friendly service. Good wine selection. Delicious food. Menu could satisfy picky eaters - restaurant specialties, steaks, schnitzel, duck breast, varieties of pizzas. Delicious food.

We ate here about 4 times during our two week holiday. The food was very tasty and good portions. Friendly staff staff too.

We didn't ask for that wine however they do have a very well stocked bar, so possibly they have. If not I wouldn't let it stop you from having a meal there.
