Dropped in today for lunch. Busy with functions but found a table. Nice menu. Chose seafood salad and partner in crime had a seafood pie. Both looked and tasted good. Service was friendly and efficient.

What a beautiful meal. Really happy with the quality of the food. Had quiet a wait to get a table but it was worth every second. The prawns starter was the nicest dish I ever tasted. Can't wait to get back for more.
