Don't waste your time or money. To be fair the entree was OK, nothing special, but the mains were truly terrible. Pay the ferry and go to the Duke in Russell if you want an awesome meal for much the same price.More

Slow service, incorrect orders taken, no spice in food regardless of varying degrees ordered, no interest in rectifying the situation, no acknowledgement of complaints. One of the worst meals we've had. What will tourists to the Bay think if this is all we can offer.More
