Great location at the waterfront for watching people go by. Good choice of beers and the pizza was very tasty. Service seemed a little bit slow but we were in no rush, in any case; the bar was reasonably busy at the time, however. Good place to spend an hour or so, watching the world go by

Location is the best point of this restaurant. It looks very nice from the outside with alfresco seating but food and service are poor. I mean, waitresses are friendly but not attentive. I had to ask twice for some tap water, and after we finished the meal it took a while to have the table cleared, so I lost interest... More

On a nice afternoon or early evening it's a great place for people watching by the harbour as you sip a drink and maybe have a pizza like we did. We were surprised the kitchen closed so early on a Friday (9PM).

Food 3+, Service 2, suffering from short staffing in front and rear of house on a busy valentines night. Food took forever to get to table.

What is this restaurant doing so far down the list, it is way better than this (written when it was 117 on Tripadvisor). Maddy was our waitress, she was phenomenal! We chose the chowder, I had the scallops which were excellent, my husband had the pork belly and we chose a bottle of rose. My husband was blown away by... More

My wife and I had an excellent lunch here on a Sunday. I had seafood chowder and she had "lettuce cups" with ceviche. Both were excellent. The restaurant was almost empty, and service was ok but a little sporadic. Great beer and wine. Reasonable price for dining outdoors close to the water.

Stopped in for late lunch on a miserable weekday. Almost put off because someone came out to smoke when I was outside reading the menu (I'm not a smoker so the smell clashed with the thought of food) but one of the staff poked his head out to answer any questions I might have, in a friendly, not pressuring, way....

We stopped by for a quick lunch outside near the waterfront. I had a delicious bowl of seafood chowder & my wife had an interesting macaroni & cheese with bacon sandwich. Both were very good. Good service as well.
