Stopped in for a family lunch. We received excellent service from Lily who went out of her way to be fantastic. The food and atmosphere was perfect and topped off with a beautiful view of waterfront. Well worth the visit.

Situated at the water's edge this restaurant's location is simply stunning. The food is great, the dining experience informal and relaxing. Great place to eat alone because the views and events unfolding around you are enough to keep you entertained.
