Overlooking the open ocean, with string winds and waves, the view is simply fantastic. However the food could be improved and some service staff doesn't smile much.

They are child friendly, I took my three little grand children with me. I have to say they are well behaved and accustomed to eating out. I am always aware of other dinners where children are concerned.
