Service was fantastic, friendly and very attentive. The meal, oh what a generous portion, and the taste, simply fantastic. I will definitely return when next in the area, and enjoyable evening with a glimpse of a view.

Thank D0rzy

Pretentious food without the quality. Too expensive for what it serves. Wine list is very limited and by the glass options poor. Plastic tables without tablecloths or even place mats. Service was slow and totally in-personal.

Loved the food and service and wanted to show my gratitude by leaving a tip. I asked whether it was shared with the chefs and was told the owner pocketed all tips, I avoid eating at places like this and owners with this greedy attitude need to be exposed.

Thank you for your feedback. I apologize if there is miscommunication about tips. All the tips goes to tip jar and used for staff xmas present and staff party. As we believe it is a team effort. As per the staff suggested the tip we got from you, we already bought the lotto as suggested by you. if we will win we will defiantly update you.
Once again thanks for the time writing for the feedback.

My wife and I had the early bird dinner at Roquette. The food was very good and at the early bird price was good value- not cheap but weĺl worth it and a glass of good wine was included too. We had desserts too (not included in the EB deal) and lemon meringue stack was lovely! Restaurant is well positioned with a partial view of whale island from our table. Only negative was service was a little hit and miss - had to go up to bar to order another drink and then when they bought it they left the empty glasses? but overal good.
