This was the best restaurant we visited. Great view, happy hour, staff and food. Great food in terms of taste and presentation. Entertaining to see ships passing thru and changing light on the houses. Informative and pleasant waiter. A must visit.

The food was amazing, the atmosphere was great. However the service was only ok. The server was rarely seen and our glasses were empty most of the time.

Excellent view, feel, food and service. Go on a Thursday night and ask for a table outside on the decking/veranda so you can see the fireworks. Thank you for a very romantic evening.
