Great location, very presentable, good food and attentive waiters. The food is not as amazing as expected but definitely still value for money. Great cocktail menu and wide variety of beers served here.

Always open minded... but sadly will not return. Good view and friendly staff. Menu very limited. Fish was not fresh but rather freshly frozen. Food average for average prices. Get the feel of it being more a bar/pub for younger crowd than international market.

Of all the spots lined up along the street, this is the place to go. Above the other restaurants, overlooking the bay with a cool Island-type atmosphere, 8 different kraft beers on tap, good food at reasonable prices.

Service was terribly slow, food was poor with some of it being inedible. Also the manager could certainly have been better. Will not be back.

Our seafood platter was very good. The chef brought it to us personally - a nice touch! Service was a little slow but it didn't matter much as we took in the gorgeous view. Found the staff to be friendly.
