Food was OK, slow service, interesting venue for a restaurant. It was interesting watching the fish (including rays, sharks, and turtles) whilst waiting.... Wine costly.

Had visited before but slightly disappointed this time. It just seemed a bit run down . Also screaming children didn't add to the enjoyment . One child obviously was frightened and screamed constantly. Cafe wax fine and well priced. Staff good
