We stayed two nights and ate both nights in the restaurant. The food and service was exceptional. Loved the seafood chowder for starter and the trio of fish for main course. Delicious dessert was shared by my husband and myself.

We loved this resturant and had a superb lunch after walking around this most picturesque village. Full of lovely shops, an amazing pottery and beautiful bay. The staff were helpful, friendly and attentive and the food was great value and beautifully cooked and presented.
