Quality of the food was poor, oysters tasted old and bacon was burnt! I would expect better food from a counter meal at a pub! Their service was prompt but that's the only upside to this outdated "restaurant" (using that term very loosely)

Disappointing, to say the least. The seafood combo was singularly unspectacular with overcooked, tasteless fish fillet and dry bugs that had clearly been thawed and possibly microwaved - totally inedible. My frind had the squid which she couldn't eat due to excessive saltiness. At 8.45...More

Stopped by purely by accident. An unpretentious little restaurant, unlicensed so bring your own bottle. But great service, lovely staff (with a special gold star for the gregarious and charming Leila) and generally a really nice experience! Well worth a visit!

This location overlooks the Esplanade and does a great breakfast. Open from 7am, it was doing a steady trade on the day of my visit. Awesome on a sunny morning to take in the world.
