Food is always great. Even though the restaurant was packed the service was still friendly and welcoming. Definitely a place to visit in or out of season.

The staff set up a proper table on the second level so we could have a private outdoor dining experience. Normally there is just a couple of bistro tables there, but the view was fantastic. We had the Oyster special (oysterfest related), catch of the day and a seafood salad.

The service was very good and the food was great. A great touch was the blankets that were provided at each table in the very cold weather being experienced at the moment in the area as well as the log fires on the top deck! Had a lovely dinner there indeed.

A quick lunch with family and friends became a 10h event. What a treat it was. Location is stunning, we had an upstairs table by a large open window, overlooking the waterfront. Extensive menus and wine list caters for all tastes. The service was world class, thank you Lennox and your happy helpers for taking such good care of us... More

Planned to have a spontaneous lunch here, but after our two cocktails took ages to arrive, we chose to rather get the bill, and left.
