Needless to say, the star of this restaurant is the view. Food very good, but not remarkable. Staff friendly and efficient. Price is right, particularly given the location. Fun atmosphere.

Everyone in our group agreed that their food was prepared well and served hot. The steak and lobster was excellent; our waiter (Israel) recommended several entrees, all of which were enjoyed by friends. Piri piri is the go-to order, not too spicy but good flavor.
