Lovely little restaurant, offering lovely menus of locally sourced food. The stunning views across the bay and estuary, make for a wonderful backdrop to your meal. The staff are very friendly and attentive and the facilities are of a high standard.

The choice of menu was superb. All the food was tasty and looked pleasing. One of our party was pregnant and queasy, one was a vegetarian and the third can eat anything. All of us ate well with good choice.
