Thoroughly enjoyed a delicious seafood lunch in this amazing waterfront location. The food was fresh, plentiful and beautifully presented. The Cafe's atmosphere and decor is both nautical and relaxing. Staff were really friendly too. We'll definitely be back

Just waited 50 minutes for take-away fish n chips. They'd run out of scallops. Not worth coming back.
