Disappointed with the Malborough Sav Blanc ages of bottles, tasted more like Chardonnay as too old. Need to be drank with in a year of bottling. Ours was a 2017 and 2015, too old.

The atmosphere and location are fantastic. Once the restaurant got busy, the bar staff couldn't cope - they were unorganised bring us double up on our drinks order or not at all
Hi Janiece, Thank you for your feedback. We're so happy you enjoyed the atmosphere and our location, we're very lucky to have such a stunning outlook over the Marina. We were understaffed in our bar on Saturday night and I apologise that this affected your evening. We hope to see you again. Cheers, Lily

Service is shocking. Seated and 15 minutes before we finally asked if we could have a drink. Asked if we wanted table water - even that didn’t turn up. Restaurant is sectioned so one waitress doing nothing and the other run off her feet. Last three times we’ve been same appalling service. Won’t be going back. Spoke to manager. She couldn’t care less. It’s a shame - food is good and view is gorgeous. Bring on new management.

Our first visit in 20 years. It was most enjoyable. The music was quiet and this enabled good conversation.
