    Harbourside setting is unbeatable, and we were lunching on a sunny day. Waiters are expert and attentive but not intrusive. Food as usual delicious. Full marks!

    I was reluctant to dine in a tourist area but it was actually very nice food and would go back to try other dishes. The sand scallop dish and eggplant hot pot is delicious!
