We ate at Shells for both lunch and evening meals. The staff, led by Artee were very attentive and could not do enough for you. The food was also of the highest quality

The waitress and waiters are superb and the food is freshly cooked and so delicious. Artee the waitress is a start - always smiling and will ensure you have a great service. A la carte menu with a great variety of food

Great restaurant with a great view. The service of the restaurant is great up until you have received your dessert. Then it feels like they sometimes take too long to clear. But the service otherwise as well as the food definitely makes up for it!...More
