We went for lunch, it's a nice place to go for a meal. The service was OK we did not feel very welcome but it's OK we wanted to have lunch and this is what we got. Prices are OK for the area.

Concierge at Le Meridien told us about this and our guide, Tracey Thomas confirmed it is great. It is! The fresh fish and the salads were wonderful. The service was friendly and efficient. Ask for a table on the dock over the water.
