Was excellent, thank you 😁👏would not hesitate to go again 👍
The building is in a prime location for great views of the ocean, however as it's not an open plan layout, not all sections have this. Very friendly service, food was nice and generous in serving size. Just a little noisy - but still thoroughly enjoyable.
Had been a couple of years back and was thoroughly disappointing, i don't know if it has changed hands sine then but now it is amazing.
