The restaurant is just off the main road and is sign-posted, but if you're not paying attention you may miss it. The restaurant is at the end of a driveway, so there is no road noise if... More

What a great restaurant. Definitely on the pricey side but a great splurge meal. Pumpkin stuffed with shrimp was incredible, oysters fresh and delicious and fried fish all highly recommended!
