Went for my birthday lunch and had very good food. We especially loved the the share dessert plate which had about 6 different things to try. The views of the ocean are beautiful especially if you sit out on the verandah.

Hi Liza - thanks for your question. The dress code is casual - the only rule is that you cannot be shoeless and must wear a top i.e. no swimwear, men topless in board shorts etc... Cheers - Nathan
