Food is excellent! Ask to sit outside. LUTHER is the best waiter (2nd year in a row we've had him) who provides excellent service!!!

A&B was A1 for me. Luther took care of the party impeccably - best service on this holiday. Food was great too - lobster pesto risotto was generous and mouth watering. Table outside overlooking the harbour was lovely. Thoroughly recommended

We sat outside, it was nice to sit and look out in the marina. The food was great! We had the Seabass and Grouper. The shrimp cocktail was really good. Definitely recommend! It's pretty pricey.
