Ate there for lunch with friends and everyone loved their meal. Our guests enjoyed the sushi and the grilled calamari. We enjoyed the chicken Caesar and the carpaccio. The macadamia nut brownie is enough for two and delicious.

High Class restaurant with a touch of Yacht Club Snob Appeal. The menu offers a fine variation of fresh fish, yet the kick doesn‘t come.

Sirocco is a must go, but do understand the prices are a little higher, but worth it. The seafood dishes are recommended. They also offer a pick up and drop off service, pity we did not know. Service was good
