If you are looking for a top notch restaurant, this is most definitely the one. The food is top notch and there is a quaint little bar where cocktails are made. No complaints, excellent food, excellent presentation and excellent customer service. Thoroughly recommended.

Great food, service and atmosphere. Intimate restaurant on the harbour side. Thoroughly enjoyed the steak. Reasonable value but not the place to eat if you're on a budget
