This restaurant is on Thesen Island and the menu includes pizza, burgers and has a sushi menu too. We went for burgers which were really tasty. My husband had a pizza which again looked good and was very thin with plenty of topping.

We had dinner at Sirocco and it was definitely worth it. Our waiter Nadine was super efficient and friendly. Nice cocktail menu and the view is breathtaking. The food is a bit pricey but still good value for money.
