Hi went to the Captains Table three times during a recent holiday. Food was very good with plenty of both choice and amount. Good choice of drinks as well. Save room for the deserts they are particularly good!

In comparison to the selection of small restaurants in the immediate vicinity the Captain's Table offered a decent menu selection of more than Chicken & Rice in a very pleaseant dining area. Staff friendly, prices matched.
