Fabulous dining experience from the special table booked over the water to the last morsel of seafood and vietnamese salad for 2. Wow Wow Wow! Looked after beautifully and felt very special. Thank you.

Shared a Seafood Platter with my dad. Great flavours, Asian influences and a refreshing change from batter and chips. Staff are well trained and attentive.

Lovely spot by the water, which you pay for in the prices of drinks and food. They host a great trivia night Thursdays and overall the place has a good atmosphere :)
