From the outside looks quite impressive with a small carpark to the side.
When you enter you feel as though you've entered an 80's bar / nightclub, it's all a bit dated and over the top for it's location.
I had requested an outside table with it being the hottest day of the year and had only really picked this place so as we could enjoy the fantastic views. Without ranting too much, we were told that outside space was taken. Tables became free & twice after asking the hostess if we could move, she ignored us. Not great customer service from front of house. The Michael Buble background music playing, also featured his Christmas songs, which even the young girl on the table next to us picked up on, but the staff didn't seem to notice!
Our waitress however was AMAZING and couldn't do enough for us, she eventually got us a table on the terrace from which we ate our main meal.
This is definately the place to come to for views, but the food is mediocre and lets it down. The Fruit de Mer was terribly watery and tasteless and the sea bass was limp and the skin not crisp. The lobster tempura was tasty but the batter again was soft & spongy.
Great location, but they need to work on the inside decor & food.
