Had breakfast at the Lookout Deck. I would go here again for the view alone. Food was perfectly adequate (nothing special), Service was top class and overall it was a memorable experience in a positive way.

Fantastic location and pleasant service but unfortunately the food is disappointing, a bit too greasy to my taste. Good place for a beer and if you like chips.

Last night the hake was soggy and the calamari old and dry. Full marks for the tomato soup. But we won’t bother to return.

We were there peak season on a rainy day (no outside tables available due to weather) but they have such efficient staff that they accommodated masses of people inside. No booking required in my opinion.
