We have visited here on numerous occasions and continue to be happy to return. The seafood tower is a must try, but recommend no breakfast or even lunch before, depending when you choose to eat it. Food is always cooked well, they strive to meet any requests and the staff who have been there since our first visit are friendly,... More

Went to the Italian over Easter having high expectations but was soon grounded when the customer service we experienced was undetected. We eventually left after 15min without being acknowledged, after been given a table, let alone drinks orders taken. Maybe the restaurant couldn't handle the volumes over the holidays but then don't take on more customers who are bound to... More

My wife, daughter, grandchild and I had dinner here on a recent Sunday evening. The location is outstanding, the service was good but the food was very average. We all thought the same... even our 19mth grand daughter who eats everything did not like her pasta dish. Maybe it was an off night.

Great location , Great staff , Good food and a good size , starters did seem to be a little over priced . Garlic bread was a bit stale .. But overall I would go back for a second chance .

After reading some good reviews we gave this a try for lunch. Guess we visited on an off day. Mediterranean salad was uninteresting and lacking any oils or flavour. The share plate of scallop, oyster, salmon was stale like it had been sitting in a fridge or something for 24 hours waiting to be served. Sorry, but just awful. Wouldn't... More

Fantastic view and pizza. Pina colada was excellent and refreshing. We had oysters as an entree which were nice. The pasta was ok however the highlight was the pizza. Would go back got coffee and cake, they looked delish.
