We started our evening with a lovely walk around the lake before dining at Lillys restaurant. The restaurant has a phenomenal water view. We split an order of mussels and it really could have used some garlic in the recipe since it was somewhat bland....More

The restaurant is located bang on the river and serves good sea food along with options of burgers / pasta / sandwiches and alcohols. We really enjoyed the music, the ambience and the food of course.
