    Yes it is as far as I'm aware. I'm sure the restaurant offers a children's menu too.

    In my opinion, Christmas Day lunch at the Sea Hotel was excellent value for money! Three of us sat in the Fregate restaurant, which was the most expensive, but I would not hesitate to book again, or to recommend this place!
