A good place to wait for the ferry ride as it lies next to the harbour. Otherwise the food is not that good and much overpriced for my taste. They have some local food, pizzas, pastas, Indian food and some seafood as well.

The location is great, menu limited and prices are on the higher side. Service is decent but not very great. Ambience is average. Please try the sea food and avoid lamb dishes.
