Service 9/10 Scenery 10/10 Price 6/10 Food 7.5/10 $28 for a chicken schnitzel. Schnitzel was very small for the price, chips were covered in salt but after taking a lot of salt off the chips were amazing & the salad has horrible dressing.

The price compared to the portions would be even understandable giving the nice location on the water, if only the food quality was acceptable. We got two dishes: one entree that was clearly pre-prepared, being cold and hard from fridge storage, and one mixed fish...More

Had breakfast there last Sunday and followed up with dinner the same day. Good food and service both times, little bit expensive but worth it.
