Restaurant
“The perfect place for a long, relaxed dinner out. The professional staff do all they can to meet your needs and ensure your wine glass is never empty for long. Their sharing plate is the perfect way to wind down after a busy day exploring before you tuck into their delectable main meals. Watch the lights come on around the harbour as you share a decadent dessert and a last glass of wine.”
