We ordered the prawns which the menu stated were covered with lemon butter. However, when they arrived they were very dry much to our disappointment! The creme brûlée was delicious. Service was slow!

Such a nice looking restaurant, sadly the service and food did not live up to expectation. The waiters were extremely slow. The prawn starter was dry and bland. The kingclip main was overlooked. To top it off the toilets were filthy. Don't bother going here

One of my favourite places to visit. The atmosphere is always so relaxed, staff are so helpful and friendly and the food/sushi, cocktails and desserts are amazing. Its the perfect place to just relax with your friends and family for a long lazy catchup.
