The views from the dining room were the highlight, althought he food was quite good also. I had fish and chips which is quite risky, but the batter was nice and crispy and the chips good. Limited wine selection, but adequate.

We ate here on two different nights. The "small portions" menu for the kids was very reasonably priced and quite large (they ate the leftovers for breakfast). I especially enjoyed the seafood linguine I had the second night.
