    Perfect service, accompanied by an excellent meal. I really enjoyed the stuffed baby squid and the Alberino that was recommended was a perfect match.

    I was very impressed with the delicious food and wine, good atmosphere, and attentive staff mid week. Appreciated the extra love with a cute message that came with our dessert on our anniversary too

    Small portions. Service was hard to flag down. Place is beautiful with nice views. It feels a bit that you pay for view, rather than food.

    What a beautiful spot for a nice family birthday lunch. Beautiful views, with lovely food and lovely service. It's great that a fine dining restaurant has a kids menu.

    Gorgeous location, perfect service. Preferred the yellowfin tartare over the duck tortellini but both were tasty and beautifully presented.

    The portions were at the smaller end of expectation and the duck sauce could have been hotter. nothing further to add.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The barramundi was perfectly cooked. I have never had one so succulent. I would like to try the a la carte menu next time. Unbeatable location with beach views.
