We dropped in for happy hour. We also enjoyed snapper bites as a snack. Both were specially priced during happy hour. Friendly servers. Great views. We were glad that we went. It is not on the main drag in Sidney so you need to look for it. It is our favourite Happy Hour in Sidney. We are looking forward to going back. We also have plans for going to their Sunday brunch.

We went for dinner on a Monday evening at 8:30 pm and thought we might be turned away because of the time and day and winter season. Not so. Welcomed by the friendly bartender, Ian. Ian served us and was very helpful to our questions and made good suggestions. We enjoyed a nice casual dinner and a couple of beverages and also gave in to his suggestions of dessert. We were not dissatisfied at all.
Although it was evening I am sure the view would be fantastic during day light hours only adding to the experience.
We will be back to find out!

Nice atmosphere with harbour view. Had the calamari. Very tasty. Stayed for the Chef's special. Moroccan Chicken with roasted red pepper and sweet potato mash. Very nice flavours. Pleasant and friendly staff.

We stop in once a month or so for a date, we love the location and the food... Its simple, and I hope it remains that way. The menu has expanded once already, I hope thats where they hold the line. Its one of the things we love. Service can be slow, but thats only when its crazy in there, I feel for them as it must be difficult to staff. truly amazing food!

Tasteful decor, located right on the harbour, staff were engaging and the menu is limited but still a good variety. We shared great nachos and happy hour drinks.
