On the water, beautiful deck with views of the bay. Excellent service and they don’t rush you. More expensive than regular restaurants but worth it. Good for a special occasion.  Can be a little bit noisy.

Smart with a good ambience.  Service is excellent and the food is beautifully presented with the added benefit it tastes good too! Higher end prices but if you download vouchers from restaurant.com it makes it affordable. Great selection of wines.

The food’s fabulous- steaks and seafood. The service is first class- the staff are very knowledgeable and will pair wine to compliment your choice of food. They are also very friendly. Its International food and the 3-course meal with 5 wines are to be recommended.  High-end price point but absolutely worth it.
