    The tomato based sauce in the tapas were much the same, specifically the prawns, potato/bean dish. The pita bread could have been crispier.

    Great friendly service and the quality of the food was good too! A bit pricey and only 2 dessert options!

    Comfortable indoor dining in miserable weather last night, still with lively water views. Excellent service and food - simple but beautifully cooked and presented.

    Enjoyed the food, but the service was very patchy. We were dining before the theatre and had allowed enough time, but the meal for one of our group didn’t arrive and when it did she had to scramble to eat it in time. Although they did not charge for that meal, it was still not a great experience.

    We stopped in for a quick bite before a Vivid cruise. The service and atmosphere was relaxed and courteous. Would dine here again.
