We were really pleased to get a table for dinner here. The food was all really good and the staff really friendly - especially considering how busy they were. We arrived after sunset so didn’t see the view but I can imagine it’s pretty awesome.

Thanks for the great review. When we first opened we had two signs down by the road and both we vandalised and torn down. If we put another one there probably it will go the same way. Regards Michael
