We had dinner here. The meal was nice, but the service slow and a little disappointing. The views of the sunset was lovely.

This restaurant came highly recommended but unfortunately did not live up to this I ordered the lamb duo. Lamb straps were over cooked and tough. Desert lacked flavour. On the positive the Mock tail was lovely.
