The barmaid was excellent!!! I came in with my fiancé just before new year and then came on the 4th and were served by such a lovely woman at the bar. We were served by Abbie who made us amazing margaritas. We got some food after being recommended by her some of the starters. The food was so good! (We had the squid and chicken wings). Such a lovely Christmas atmosphere made even better by the barmaid. Will be returning in the future hopefully soon!!!

We had our work Christmas party. The food was nice. First time I had ravioli and it tasted great. Will come back

Been in here 3 times. First two times, service was shocking - slow, waitresses were arguing audibly amongst themselves, food came out cold, and generally treated like we were in the way and an inconvenience. Today I popped in for a quick breakfast before an appointment thinking I’d give it one more try, stood waiting to be seated and eventually a waitress came over and asked if she could help. Said I’d like a table, to which she looked at me very confused and said “we’re closed”. I looked around at the other people sat inside and she followed up with “this is a private event, we’re closed today.” No sign outside or on the door to indicate this might be the case, apparently I was just supposed to know. Won’t be coming back for another chance.


Amaazing food! Sunday lunch was delicious, great big portion. The whole experience from start to finish was amazing, great hostess Marta made our birthday lunch even more special.

Much as I appreciate the clear signage of the few gluten free and vegan options on their menu this is not a good restaurant if you have dietary requirements.The menu does offer a gluten free or vegan base on the pizzas but no one could answer my questions on if the sauces and toppings were suitable for any of the pizza combinations or if there would have to be other swaps to make them suitable. I wouldn't expect them to know off the top of their head but the server wasn't interested in finding out. So I had the steak, which was fine, but the server did try and tell me that it was cooked with butter. Butter is dairy not gluten. I would expect a restaurant worker to know the difference as a bare minimum.Dietary restrictions: The staff are not knowledgeable on the difference between gluten and dairy. I wouldn't trust them to be up on cross contamination or other dietary care either.

Had a lovely time here. The staff were truly excellent in the restaurant. The food we ordered was also very nice.

parsnips looked and tasted like frozen chips that hadn’t been cooked . Staff dressed like they worked on a garage forecourt and £12 for a gin and lemonade no crackers or any extra touches yet charge £39 for a Christmas meal


Wonderful food - we ordered Ribs and Wings combo and they were wonderful. Nice large restaurant and empty ish which was perfect for my Dad who is deaf. Friendly staff and great food.

Grat Sunday Lunch and always great service.

Large variety of food, very pricey for what it is. Food is good but nothing exceptional.I wouldn’t rush back here for the food but the outside seating area looking over ocean village is a very nice spot for a drink.

After hearing such great things about this place i decided to visit one day and was nothing short of disappointed. Practically empty with loud music that didn't bother me however, the i cant be bothered to serve this customer attitude of the staff did. Dispite gaining eye contact several times the bar staff was too busy talking about non business issues with other staff and re arranging the bottles and glasses behind the bar. Once they realised i wasn't just going to give up and leave they begrudgingly decided to serve me what turned out to be an overpriced warm beer. There was no welcoming atmosphere so i decided to eat elsewhere. Will not return or recommend.


We only popped in for a drink but the staff were SO friendly I just had to leave a review. On arriving I realised that I’d lost the shopping bag I’d been carrying, but luckily for me I found it whilst retracing my steps along the marina. Numerous members of staff took the time to ask me if I’d got my bag back, and all were delighted when I delivered the good news! Customer service like this makes all the difference - we’ll definitely be returning if we’re in the area again :) Oh, and Bruno the dog was GORGEOUS!

Decoration is amazing, even when is winter time, is a space can make you feel like home. Amazing views, perfect lights, colors.Food is very well presented, taste so good and a great selection of drinks, specially the wines.Kid-friendliness: Have some color pencils to kinds, have a good area.Wheelchair accessibility: The place have plenty of space to acomodate wheel chair. Apart from toilets, up stairs. But for 2 hours meal, i belive can be acceptable.
