The seafood pasta and fish and chips were great. The blackened calamari was salty and tough. Service was great. Beautiful view in the harbor. Prices were reasonable for being in the harbor.

All pretty predictable at this quayside cafe/restaurant. But predictably fine. Friendly service but I do wish I could eat without hawkers in attendance

Very large restaurant which can feel a little empty at times. Good vibes when full. Wide range of dishes. Food and service average. Excellent position and view.
