Nice restaurant and great view out to sea. Staff are friendly and has a good choice of dishes. We had the seafood basket which was very good especially the fish.

We ordered the tuna sandwich (came with very little tuna and ridiculous amount of mayo), which came toasted and was very bland. The chicken cutlets were super greasy and we couldn't finish them. Great service and view.
